2 x 90th Birthdays!!!!
West Hove Ladies celebrate two of their ladies 90th Birthdays in one year. Peggy Hopwood and Mary Pearse both celebrate their 90th birthdays this year, so our Lady Captain arranged a surprise birthday party for the two ladies who are both still playing golf as members of West Hove. The event was run in conjunction with the Jane Dowling Fun Golf Competition and 38 past and present lady members attended the party where Megan presented a mini ‘This is Your Life’ for both Peggy and Mary.
The lady members pulled together in finding beautiful floral tea sets and Jackie Briant created lovely table decorations. Jeanie; Jane; Alex and Megan baked the cakes to go with the high tea, which included two birthday cakes. Memorabilia was put up about 1929 along with photographs of the two birthday girls through the years. A beautiful party with appropriate musical entertainment for two wonderful ladies who appeared to thoroughly enjoy themselves!
The ladies winning the Jane Dowling Day Fun Competition were;
1st - Julia Edwards; Jo Common and Anna Ross
2nd - Rita Hedderman; Jill Barker and Dianne Brookes
Thanks to Alex Wickett for her donation towards the prizes and wine in memory of her dear Mum, Jane Dowling.
