Elderly residents enjoyed an early festive treat at Barking Abbey School.

Local senior citizens were invited to the Hatfield Hall school to tuck into a turkey dinner in the hall.

Pupils at the secondary served up a roast with all the trimmings – plus lots of Christmas cheer – on Thursday afternoon.

The visitors also donned paper hats to enjoy some carol singing.
