On 5 Feruary 1955 the club held its first big anniversary celebration a dinner

dance to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the club.  It was held at the Shaftesbury

Hotel on and cost £1 - incredible when looked at through twenty first century glasses!!

 

An anonymous member arranged a wonderful anniversary cake.

 

 

I received photographs of the attandance from the late Ossie Barrett and Mary

O'Connell.  The photographs looked as if they were professionally taken and

show the attendance on the left of the hall, the centre and the right and then

the three of the stuck together to make a panoramic photograph.

Unfortunately as I came on the scene so long after the event I do not recognise

any of the faces in these wonderful photographs
