Member Wendy Rome presented the group with a beautiful birthday card which she had created. David Richardson, husband of member Stephanie Dow, had made and donated a very attractive birthday cake decorated with the WI logo. The cake was cut by Mrs Weaver and Mrs Garnett. Following a delicious meal, members were entertained by the South Pennine Singers who presented a varied and enjoyable of songs from the shows and other light music. Members left the party with a piece of scrumptious cake and happy memories of a wonderful evening!
