37 YEARS AGO

Airdrie & Coatbridge Advertiser - - Memory Lane -

El­derly Mon­k­lands res­i­dents be­lied their years for an ex­cit­ing knees-up to warm their hearts as win­ter ap­proached.

The en­er­getic se­nior cit­i­zens were pre­par­ing to en­joy the Air­drie Old Age Pen­sion­ers’ Group’ s con­cert in the Sir John Wil­son town hall in Oc­to­ber of 1982.

And they were joined by a very spe­cial guest as Coat­bridge MP Tom Clarke turned out to en­joy a spin or two on the dance­floor.

The con­cert was one of sev­eral lo­cal events held dur­ing Old Peo­ple’s Week in Mon­k­lands and all of the party-go­ers de­fied their ad­vanc­ing years to have a night to re­mem­ber.

They were also treated to a de­li­cious slap-up meal and got to min­gle with sev­eral friendly faces.

The town hall air was filled with clas­sic tunes as the mag­i­cal mu­sic had ev­ery­one singing and danc­ing along.
