A party filled with magic, music and cake was organised by club co-ordinator Doreen Chapman to celebrate 40 years of the Wormegay and Tottenhill Over-60s club.
Mrs Chapman was a founding member of Wormegay Entertainments Committee 40 years ago, with an aim to provide entertainment and activities for locals in the area.
She said: There was nowhere to go and nothing to do in the village so a group of us decided to start the Entertainments Committee, to give something to the community.”
The committee was later renamed the Over 60s Club and has about 22 members, all of whom were invited, alongside local residents, to celebrate its 40th anniversary with an illusionist, an organ player and a buffet with a Pimms arrival.
Valued friend Valerie Southgate helps Mrs Chapman organise and run the club’s monthly meetings and events, alongside Mrs Chapman’s daughter, Joy Hallam.
Mrs Hallam said: “What is lovely about the club is that they all help each other out. Those who can drive help out those who can’t, and they all pull together to organise events and generally support each other. Mum has kept it going all this time even though sometimes its hard work.
“She is very organised and dedicated, although she wouldn’t tell you that herself!”
The club meets every second Monday of the month from 2-4pm at the Tottenhill village hall, for bingo, quizzes, talks, bring-and-buy sales and afternoon tea, and also organises trips out to the local area.
