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.
