IT was back to the 1950s for members of the Goldthorpe and District Women’s Institute at their early Diamond Jubilee Party on May 17.

Members went back in time and enjoyed a buffet and entertainment as if it was 1952, the year of the Coronation and the hall was decorated with bunting and Union Jack flags.

Secretary Sue Lindley, said: “ We had a great time. Everyone was asked to wear something in red, white or blue and the ladies of the craft club section displayed the quilted cushion which had been made to commemorate the Diamond Jubilee”.

The Goldthorpe and District Women’s Institute meets at 7pm every third Thursday each month at the Parish Rooms, Lockwood Road, Goldthorpe. As well as the monthly meetings members enjoy a full social calendar of events and trips. Call Sue Lindley (01226 755845) or Lynda Handley 01709 889427.
