CELEBRATION: A good time had by all

I was recently invited to Newbiggin Maritime Centre to commemorate the 70th year of the NHS.

Saturday, 6th October 2018, 06:26 am

All of the old people’s homes in Newbggin by the Sea were invited.

We were told about the NHS and afterwards were served a beautiful array of food, with tea or coffee presented in beautiful, old-fashioned cups.

We were entertained by Gillian Storey and a lady and a gentleman who played the guitar and sang.

After singing, we had bingo, then we were given cakes and a bag full of fruit to take away.

I must mention the service provided by four volunteers, three from the Newbiggin traders, who were dressed up for the celebration.

I must also give a special mention to Sheila Harrison, a councillor who runs the Maritime Centre. She is magnificent.

When there is an election to run, I would nominate her as chairman, she is so efficient.
