Singing and magic at Rotary party
ONE hundred and fifty pensioners attended a party organised for them by Ashford Rotary Club. The party was held on Sunday to mark the 30th anniversary of Rotary Entertains, with guests aged up to 100 years old enjoying afternoon tea and entertainment at Norton Knatchbull School. Entertainment was provided by Clover, a trio of young women performing songs from the 1940s through to the 60s, who had all the guests joining in with the singing. Dave the Magician then took centre stage with Highworth School then providing further entertainment. The tea was supplied by members of Inner Wheel and the afternoon was rounded off with a performance by Theatre Train, a large group of five to 18 year-olds who sang and danced their way through a variety of routines. The whole show was compered by Mike Adams. Rotary president Sue Sleet thanked all the entertainers, a large contingent from St John Ambulance, Inner Wheel members who provided the tea, Age Concern, Wealden Wheels, Young Carers, Kenhire and Ashford Rotarians for providing door to door transport and organising the event. The Earlybird Rotary Club and the Soroptimist Club were also thanked.
