Cuting the Cake

The Sixty-Plus Club celebrated its 70th Birthday with a tea party in the village hall on Wednesday 17th May.

Regular club members were joined by a wide group of invited guests, including local school head teachers, representatives of the parish council, St Mary's Church Rector and other local community leaders.

Entertainment was very warmly and ably provided by Gordon and Olive Kuhrt, who presented a repertoire of well known songs from across the decades, as well as a rather challenging 'Coronation Quiz' and a poetry recital.

Gordon was also joined for a duet with Cathie Deeley and together they delivered a highly modified and hilarious version of "My Favourite Things" which celebrated with tongue-in-cheek the bodily changes of getting older!

High tea then followed, lovingly prepared by a wonderful team of volunteers which allowed attendees to catch up with their friends while enjoying a range of tempting sandwiches, scones and cake.

Lead organiser Mary Wellby cut the celebratory birthday cake and invited everyone to raise a glass to toast the coninuing success of the Club at 70 years.
