6Oth Anniversary Celebrations


Diamond Jubilee Ball

The finale of our Diamond Jubilee celebrations was the Ball held on Saturday 25th June. What a night!! The hall looked amazing, balloons, sparkly glasses, fairy lights & diamond studded dance programmes all greeted the dancers as they arrived. After a glass of punch in the foyer, (too windy to go outside,) Ken Unsworth piped in the Hon. President, Hon. Vice President, committee members & our invited guests. The dancing began straight away & the floor was full all evening. The programme of dances was a good choice, everyone was in good form & danced the night away.

Di Rooney proposed a toast to the branch & invited Rita Ackers & Rachel Phillips, 2 of our founder members to cut the cake. A very surprised Chair of the Branch, Hazel Astle was presented with a Branch Award for her long service. It is not often she is left speechless, words failed her for once but she was greatly honoured.

An excellent supper was served, plenty of variety and lots of it, then the dancing began again. By the time David Queen our MC for the night announced the last dance, everyone was just about ready to go home. Marian Anderson & her band as always gave us the will to keep going, she played wonderful tunes and we all managed to stay the course despite a very warm evening. By 11.45pm, the committee breathed a sigh of relief, a very successful evening, all had gone well and everyone had enjoyed it so much.

If you came to the Ball, I hope you enjoyed it as much as we did.

That brings our formal celebrations to an end, the coming years will be just as enjoyable but a little less spectacular!
