Members and distinguished guests partied in style to toast Royston and District Local History Society’s golden anniversary last week.

The celebration event took place at the Old Bull Inn with some members who had been there since the society’s inception.

A presentation was held to honour different members and then a toast was proposed by president Peter Ketteringham.

Peter and vice president Shirley Thrussell then led the cake cutting, before the buffet was opened and celebrations officially began.

A spokeswoman for the society said: “Everyone mingled and chatted, whilst enjoying superb food and wine prepared by the excellent staff of The Old Bull.

“It will be an evening that will be remembered.”

The History Society meets in The Heritage Hall, Town Hall between October and May, on the first Thursday of the month at 8pm.
