THE Mayor enjoyed a picnic specially set up to help people with learning difficulties make friends.

Bromley Mayor, Douglas Auld, dropped in to the event on the lawn outside The Old Palace, Bromley Civic Centre on Wednesday, June 24. It is part of a series of events through the year for people with learning disabilities to get together and catch up with their friends.

Bromley council's staff choir provided musical entertainment and there were scones and soft drinks for sale.

Mr Auld said: "I was delighted to welcome everyone who came to the picnic.

"Staying in touch with friends is vital to everyone and this was a great opportunity for people with learning disabilities, young people and adults, to get together and enjoy a great social event."

He was accompanied by the Mayoress, Patricia Auld, a senior social worker for Bromley council's adult and community services.
