Shrove Tuesday Pancake Party at The Eversfield Centre 2024

Shrove Tuesday Pancake Party at The Eversfield Centre 2024

Delicious Pancakes and A Great Day!

On 13 February, Shrove Tuesday/Mardi Gras about 35 people from Trinity Church, other Mill Hill Churches and other community groups came to The Eversfield Centre and enjoyed a most successful afternoon, celebrating the day before the beginning of Lent. The highlight was freshly cooked pancakes with a variety of delicious toppings. 
They proved to be very popular and our cooks were kept busy in the kitchen all afternoon A short quiz tested our knowledge of the meaning of Shrove Tuesday and the traditions that have grown up over the centuries.
There was a real buzz of conversation throughout the afternoon and a general consensus that this first time that we had held a pancake party was a most enjoyable occasion.

Open House Meeting 2022

Open House

Our fortnightly meetings on Thursday afternoons for older people continue to be enjoyed.

During lockdown they were held remotely, but since September 2021 we have held hybrid meetings with most people coming in person to The Eversfield Centre and some joining us by Zoom from their home. 

We have had a variety of interesting and entertaining talks. Our last afternoon of the Spring term is “Fun with Handbells”. We start again after Easter on Thursday 28 April with an illustrated travel talk. On 12th May we shall hold a fund raising afternoon for Christian Aid with stories of some of their projects and a Cream Tea. Our summer term programme of talks and entertainments will as ever be varied. Open House is as its name suggests, open to all who would like to come.

We are a charity that has been offering support to the elderly in the Mill Hill and Burnt Oak area for over 40 years. All our regular events and services in their current form have been cancelled because of the Covid-19 pandemic.

We will be supporting our clients in ways that come within Government guidelines and this means that we will need many more volunteers over the forthcoming weeks and months.

Activities over Summer at Trinity Church


Holiday at Home has proved to be popular and is eagerly anticipated by many, with some of our guests coming back year after year. For those who would otherwise not have a “holiday” it is an enjoyable break from the normal routine.

This is an annual event in August which takes place at The Eversfield Centre. It is especially for older people who cannot get out much. There is a varied programme which includes talks on a wide variety of topics, music to listen to and sing along to, quizzes and games. The week provides an opportunity for people to socialise and enjoy conversation in a convivial atmosphere. Refreshments are served during the day, including home cooked lunches and afternoon tea with cakes. Transport in family cars can be arranged.

Summer 2019
Holiday at Home took place this year from 19 – 23 August at The Eversfield Centre, our 10th anniversary year. It was an enjoyable and successful week. Over the course of the week there was a total of some 200 attendances by participants, carers and helpers, with numbers each day between 36 and 41. In a warm and friendly atmosphere we enjoyed listening to some good speakers and entertainers, eating delicious home cooked lunches and tucking into afternoon tea. Time for socialising is an important part of Holiday at Home and each day there was a buzz of conversation and sharing of stories.

Our group of drivers, kitchen teams and helpers enabled the week to go smoothly and we also appreciated the support in so many ways of members and friends of Trinity Church, of other Mill Hill Churches and of Churches Together in Mill Hill.

Our thanks to all who made this another memorable Holiday at Home.

Holiday at Home 2020

After much discussion we decided that because of the Covid-19 pandemic it is not possible this August to hold our usual Holiday at Home week. We know this will be a disappointment to many. But we hope there will be other possibilities in the future.
