Members of Bideford Torridge Townswomen’s Guild and friends spent a very enjoyable time at the Guild’s first annual birthday party.
It was held at Bridge Street Methodist Assembly rooms on the evening of January 27th and was organised by Mrs Cox and Mrs Pridham with the help of an ad hoc committee.
Red, white and green, the colours of the Guild, formed the theme of the decorations of the hall and were also embodied on the birthday cake which had been iced by Mrs Cade. Mrs H W Fulford, president of the Guild, cut the cake and spoke of the happy anniversary.
There were many amusing games and competitions.
