STAR turns were discovered at a gathering of senior citizens in Frodsham, when guests relished the chance to entertain themselves at the community’s annual Over Seventies Social.
Several guests performed impressive solos during an enjoyable communal singalong, led by volunteer helpers Barbara Maddock and keyboard player Andrew Lawless.
The traditional event, which has been running for more than 60 years, is funded by Frodsham Town Council and most recently the authority’s office manager, Anne Pitt, has led the organising team.
More than 200 guests attended last Saturday’s gathering and, for many, return transport was laid on to ferry them to Frodsham Community Centre, where they were greeted by Mayor, Cllr Pammi Taylor, and treated to a three-course lunch.
Weaver Vale MP Mike Hall and the Mayor and Mayoress of Vale Royal, Cllr and Mrs Malcolm Gaskill, also attended.
Cllr Taylor said: “I’m very proud Frodsham Town Council is very inclusive of the community, particularly our senior citizens, and it was wonderful the event was another success and everyone seemed to really enjoy themselves.”
She said the council was “once again, extremely grateful” to Mrs Pitt, the caterers and the event’s many loyal volunteers, including transport stewards and waitresses, and local businesses who donated prizes for the guests’ free raffle.”
