The Beckenham and District Retired Men’s Club celebrated their 70th anniversary with a tea party on Thursday (June 2).
The event was held at Azelia Hall on Croydon Road. The club’s chairman, Bill Wallace, gave a speech and there was a raffle, which was won by member Dave Hedges.
The club was originally formed by a group of ex-servicemen in 1946.
Members meet at Azelia Hall every Thursday at 1pm, where they can have tea and biscuits and take part in activities such as chess, snooker and skittles.
The club is currently hoping to find new members in the local area.
Secretary Ron Cleverley said: “My objective going forward is to seek new members to join the club, where the atmosphere is friendly, and to ensure that existing members are kept happy and contented.”
