MEMBERS of Grays Townswomen's Guild and guests came together this week to celebrate the group's 70th anniversary.

The birthday was marked with a lunch at Top Meadow Golf Club, with a lovely meal followed by entertainment from singer Heidi McCaffrey who soon had people up dancing. 

Everyone received a special 70th birthday cup cake made by one of the members members and the ladies also received a souvenir mug marking the occasion.

The memorabilia table.

The Guild, which meets on the fourth Wednesday afternoon each month at the Methodist Church Hall, was started in 1954 and there was a memorabilia table at the lunch with plenty of photographs from past events which gave everyone a good chuckle at the fashion changes over the years. 

Past events were remembered.

Chairlady Yvonne Lauder told Nub news: "Our meeting afternoons are friendly and fun with a raffle and speaker plus a drink and biscuit and the chance to have a good natter with friends. 

"We are still going strong after 70 years with a full subscription of members and a waiting list."
