Hornchurch and Upminster MP Julia Lopez said that as Havering has the highest proportion of over-65s in London it is vital that people are able to easily access local organisations that provide support.
She said: "We have a huge array of organisations that do tremendous work to ensure that our older years can be just as fulfilling as our younger years.
"The fair was incredibly well-supported by the community and we are very grateful to Queen's for hosting, for all those stallholders and residents who joined us for the afternoon and to the local choir who entertained visitors with their repertoire of show tunes.
"We hope now to make this an annual event."
