ELDERLY Fieldway residents were given an early Christmas dinner by the estate's police officers on Monday.

PCSO Jamie Hawes and PC Ricky Phillips organised turkey and all the trimmings for 53 residents of sheltered retirement flats Beech House and Ashwood Gardens.

The dinner was laid on for the festive pensioners at Wolsey Infants School and was all provided through contributions from local businesses.

Meat Express on Central Parade, New Addington, provided two large turkeys. Waitrose provided two members of staff along with mince pies and Christmas puddings, as did Greggs in New Addington.

Wolsey Junior School provided a minibus service while Wolsey Infants raised £200 to put to the costs of the event and sang carols for the pensioners. New Addington's Good Food Matters project raised £87 and donated home-made preservatives.

Any funds left over will be used to purchase goods for food banks.

Attendees were also treated to a free raffle and two rounds of free bingo with prizes.
