Fifty members, guests, past members who have left the district and three representatives from the County Federation including chairman Sally Ball, enjoyed a sumptuous tea, a piece of celebration cake and a glass of Prosecco, at the event on September 18.

The proceedings, as was fitting, started with a rousing rendition of ‘Jerusalem’.

The two cakes decorated by Yvonne Hall were cut by long standing members Rosemary Chapman and Evelyn Wilding and a rolling computerised presentation of archive photographs prepared by Ron Pickford ran throughout the evening.

The Sandy Ukelele Band, whose skill and musicianship always get everyone singing, completed the entertainment.
