Muswell Hill residents enjoyed some music and a cup of tea on Wednesday to dust off the Covid blues.
St James Church hosted its ‘TeaTime’ for seniors session in which John Harmer played the piano for a socially distanced audience including pieces by Ludwig van Beethoven and François Couperin.
Hannah Whitehead, St James’ head of community ministries, said: “Covid has really impacted a lot of people, especially the vulnerable and the elderly.
“We were running a weekly seniors group prior to lockdown, however we obviously had to stop it.
“Yet government guidelines and a reforming of our ideas have enabled us to do a concert style session which allows seniors to come together all socially distanced in our church building, which is Covid secure, for an hour of music and time together. It’s been great fun.”
