Police in the town of Essex UK made a mistake recently when they turned up to what they thought was an illegal rave, but was actually a bunch of pensioners queueing up to get their COVID-19 vaccine.
Having seen a large group of people outside the Essex Freemasons' Saxon Hall in Southend - where vaccines were being given - somebody called the police warning them of a "rave".
The Saxon Hall chairman, Dennis Baum, said: “It was really funny when the police arrived as they had been notified that there was a “rave” taking place at Saxon Hall - only to find 80 and 90 year-olds on wheelchairs, zimmer frames and walking sticks, patiently queueing for their vaccinations.
“Grumpy old men and grumpy old women were in abundance. Nevertheless, as a balancing act many more very appreciative people couldn’t have been more grateful to receive the vaccine and to Saxon Hall and the Freemasons for facilitating it.”
