A popular social group for ladies in Boldon aged over 60 was in party mood as it toasted moving another year closer to its members’ ages

Members of the Boldon Ladies Over-60s group toasted the club’s 54th year of being part of the community with a birthday party.

Scores of members of the women-only group turned out for the anniversary event at the Shack Club, in Cotswold Lane, Boldon Colliery.

Bingo

A range of activities, from tombola to bingo, were organised to keep the party in full swing.

The club, launched in 1961, meets each week and provides a gathering place for women over the age of 60 to make new new friends and learn about new interests.

And revellers at the party were eager to raise a glass to many more years together.

For more information on the group, and to find out how to join, call organiser Margaret Young on 536 4567

While the club has lots of golden memories to look back on, there is still lots to look forward to in the future.
