The Swinging Sixties Party

We looked ‘ab fab’ as we celebrated our birthday in March.  The theme of the party was the Swinging Sixties and so we dressed up in style; mini skirts, white boots, berets, flared trousers and bouffant hair – it was all happening!  Some dresses were the originals and one in particular had been worn by one of our members for her engagement in 1963.  It was so stylish and wouldn’t have been out of place in today’s boutiques.  How many of us keep our clothes for that long and then can still fit in them?

(There was a delicious buffet provided by the members and this was followed by entertainment from musician Paul Griggs (formerly of the 70s band Guys and Dolls} who sang us some sixties songs.  As it brought back the memories we sang along and then got up and danced around our handbags, just as we had done many years before.  Who remembers the Mecca Ballroom?
