A tribute day to local over 50's campaigner, Monty Meth, held at Southbury Leisure Centre, was attended by 120 people, including his widow Betty who was presented with a commemorative plaque.
Attendees on the day took part in activities including an outdoor health walk, walking football, Zumba Gold, Badminton and table tennis, swimming, Pilates and yoga.
Speeches were held in remembrance of Monty and his tireless work campaigning for pensioners and older people, in particular his work growing the Enfield Over-50s Forum to become one of the largest of its kind in London. Monty believed in sharing helpful advice and information and putting on events that would make life easier for older generations.
At the event Monty's widow Betty was presented with a plaque to recognise his work by Dominic Hall, sport and community development officer at Fusion Lifestyle. The plaque will go on to be displayed permanently at Southgate Leisure Centre
Nigel Court, Fusion Lifestyle's Regional Business Manager commented: "Monty was a true local champion and we really wanted to honour his memory and his achievements with a day that celebrated the work he did so tirelessly to help older members of the community keep active and well. It seems fitting that the plaque will go onto be displayed in one of the leisure centres he encouraged the community to use."
