Friends’ group celebrates 60 years
A GROUP for people who have reached retirement age celebrated its 60th birthday with cake, sherry and Baileys.
The Bassingbourn Over 60s Group was founded 60 years ago, and on Tuesday marked the occasion with a party.
The group, which has more than 30 members from Bassingbourn and Kneesworth on its books, meets once a week to enjoy activities.
“We’re a very sociable bunch,” said Daisy Dellar, who runs the group with husband Derek.
“Whenever it’s anybody’s birthday, they bring in sherry and the cakes. And we’ll go on day trips together to all sorts of places.”
