Birthday party: Acklington Women’s Institute celebrated its 90th birthday at the June meeting.
It was a lovely evening, present members welcoming past members and guests from local institutes with lots of memories being exchanged, all made for a very happy occasion.
Everyone enjoyed a lovely buffet supper (supplied by Pottergate Pantry) followed by entertainment provided by Beaconsfield Operatic Society who sang songs from musicals, James Bond themes plus many more finishing with Jerusalem, Land of Hope and Glory, Rule Britannia and the National Anthem with everyone joining in. It was a fitting end to a momentous evening.
