There was a colourful sea of green at a St Patrick’s Day lunch hosted by a Brent charity yesterday.

More than 110 people enjoyed an afternoon of eating, singing and dancing to celebrate the day, dedicated to the patron saint of Ireland, at St Joseph’s Social Club in Empire Way, Wembley.

The event was organised by Brent Irish Advisory Service (BIAS), a charity based in Willesden, which helps members of the Irish and other communities.

Mike McGing, BIAS’ director, said: “It was a great day and a complete sell-out.

“It was lovely to see people of all ages mingle and enjoy themselves.
