Tangent club celebrates 40 years

ONE of the most popular clubs in Royston celebrated a special anniversary last week.

Past and current members of the Royston Tangent Club gathered at the Old Bull Inn to mark 40 years.

In total, 25 members, including former chair Shirley Basham who had flown in from Spain specifically for the meeting, gathered to celebrate and reminisce.

They were joined by Jan Dowling, president of the National Association of Tangent Clubs, who gave a speech on her experiences and chosen charity – Ovarian Cancer Action, , while Royston Town Band played happy birthday.

Chair of Royston Tangent Club Rosemary Piggott said: “It was a pleasure to see so many old friends and learn about the Club in its earliest days.”

At the end of the evening, Mrs Piggott handed over the chain of office to Helen Dean the incoming chair, wishing her well in her year.”

Royston Tangent Club is for women who are or have been wives or Royston Round Table members.
