On Wednesday 25th September, Nantwich Civic Hall’s Fifty Plus Club celebrated its 40th anniversary.
From the start of the club until present day, it has been at the heart of the community providing a weekly hub for people to meet new friends and socialise.
To mark the special occasion, its 90+ members were treated to a free session with tea, cake, and each given a diary.
Club co-ordinator, Sue Brereton, welcomed everyone to the group and thanked them all for their support over the years.
Nantwich Mayor, Councillor Arthur Moran, alongside consort Councillor Carole Thomas joined the group to celebrate.
Greeting the group, the Mayor commented “They used to say life begins at 40, but now I think its 50! This is a great event where people can enjoy company and chat, I’m delighted on behalf of the Town Council that we host such an event.”
The weekly sessions offer local people the chance to chat, join in a game of table tennis or pool, exercise, swap books, but the group also organises holidays and trips out together.
For anyone interested in attending the Fifty Plus Club, it starts at 10am until 12noon every Wednesday and entry is just £2.
