A weekly meeting for older West Ham fans is looking for new members.

Are you a West Ham fan? Aged 65 or over? Living in the Romford area?

If you like the idea of sharing your memories of the club or learning more about the team, the charity Friends of the Elderly and West Ham United Foundation invite you to connect with others, using your shared love of football as a starting point.

Together they have been running successful, five-week programmes called Any Old Irons, based at the East Ham Working Men’s Club.

Groups of Any Old Irons participants have also recently enjoyed outings such as boat trip down the River Lee; watching a cricket match at Lord’s, and a day trip to Southend.

There will be a new, five-week Any Old Irons programme starting on October 25.

If you would like to join in, or find out more, you can contact Friends of the Elderly on 0330 332 111 or hello@fote.org.uk.
