Tea and Board Games at Hilton London Metropole

The Hilton London Metropole welcomed a group of 50 older people this week, from Open Age and the Penfold Community Hub, to take part in a tea and board games afternoon with their team.

Open Age is a charity that hosts weekly stimulating and interactive activities for older people, whilst the Penfold Community Hub similarly supports elderly Westminster residents with advice and accessible activities.

The groups were warmly welcomed into the spacious breakfast room on the afternoon of 23 May 2024 and quickly settled down with some tea. Delight spread as they were presented with an array of delicious chocolate cakes, lemon tarts and sandwiches provided by the Hilton London Metropole. The treats were thoroughly enjoyed by the guests and so the board game camaraderie quickly began.

Some learnt how to play backgammon and draughts whilst others preferred the more straightforward card game snap. Snakes and Ladders was also a sought-after game as groups from Penfold and Open Age mixed tables, sharing stories of their families and worldly travel experiences over their tea. Competition subsided for a moment to celebrate one of the participant’s special birthdays and everyone got together and sang for the occasion.

The Hilton team thoroughly enjoyed socialising with people from the local community and talked warmly of the connections (and competition!) they have made with their board game afternoon companions.
