Helmdon Women's Club celebrated it coral anniversary at the
weekend with the help of half-a-dozen foundling members.
Plenty of faces from past and present flooded to the event
at the village Reading Room on Saturday, October 8.
The venue had been decked out with greenery and floral displays
and everyone thoroughly enjoyed the event.
Current chairman Judy Cairns said: "It was wonderful
to see so many old friends there.
"The club has been at the centre of activities for women
in Helmdon for 35 years and we were delighted that so many
past members made the effort to be there with us to celebrate."
It was originally founded in 1970 by Elizabeth Humphrey as
the Helmdon Young Wives and Mothers' Club. The name only changed
in 1992 as the original no longer reflected the age group
of the members.
They meet at the Reading Room on the third Wednesday of each
month and the programme of events includes speakers, demonstrations
and social evenings.
