A DEDICATED secretary is retiring from one of Royston's longest-running clubs.
Barbara Charter has worked for the Forget-Me-Not club for 30 years, but has decided to stand down in March.
She will be helping the club's committee select her replacement.
Mrs Charter, 64, said: "I will be staying on to help with the committee, but I just do not have the time to do the secretarial work anymore. I've really enjoyed my time and it will be very strange not doing it."
The Forget-Me-Not club, based at the British Legion hall in Mill Road, offers elderly people the chance to socialise and take part in a number of activities. The club has more than 60 members.
Mrs Charter's affinity with the club, goes further back than the day she accepted the job after reading an advert in The Crow.

It was her grandfather William Bicker who first set up the Forget-Me-Not club.
Mrs Charter said: "My grandfather started the organisation in 1950, because there was nothing for the elderly in Royston to do.
"Since then the club has gone from strength to strength, and has had hundreds of members.
