An invitation had been received from Aln Gift Shop, Alnmouth, and four members had attended Brizlee, a very enjoyable night with entertainment.

The birthday flowers went to Winnie Banks, the raffle winners were Mrs P Flegg and the competition which was for an article beginning with the letter B was won by Mrs Rosemary Gibbs; 2 Mrs Marjorie Hewitson; 3 Mrs Shirley Tucker.

A supper of pies, peas and several sweets was served by Mrs Twyford and Mrs Nicholson.

The annual meeting followed and Joyce Shaw welcomed Prudence Marks, our WIA for the evening.

The secretary gave our annual report, the treasurer gave her financial statement and the president gave her annual address, when she thanked the committee and members for their support, and Sylvia Biott for the interesting programme we have had.
