HAPPY BIRTHDAY ... Members of Boldon Over-60s group.

IT was a full house when an over-60s club celebrated its 17th birthday.

Members of the Boldon Over-60s group gathered at The Shack Club, Cotswold Lane, Boldon Colliery, to mark the club’s 17th anniversary and indulged in an afternoon of bingo.

About 70 people attended the event, organised by entertainments manager at the club Margaret Young, and also tucked into a four-course meal.

“It was a very good day,” she said. “We couldn’t complain at all.

“The club always brings everyone together, but this was a special party for the club and its members.”

Affiliated group Boldon Ladies Over-60s, which also meets at The Shack, and has been running for 52 years, will also celebrate its anniversary in May.

“About 50 people will be there for that,” said Margaret. “And we always welcome new members. Anyone who wants to join would be more than welcome.”

Boldon Over-60s club meets at The Shack every Tuesday, at 1pm, and the ladies’ group meets on Thursdays at 6.45pm.
