On Saturday October 1st, Soroptimists of Yorkshire and their guests celebrated their 75th anniversary at a nostalgic 1930s style Indoor Street Party at the bedecked Carleton Community Centre, near Pontefract.
Everyone there attending really joined in the fun, joining in with the games and wearing the typical clothes of the war years.
The food was on the theme of an old fashioned street party - Pork pie, bread rolls with potted meat, egg, and my favourite - pork dripping! (Wow! How long is it since I ate that?) This was followed by fairy cakes, battenburg cake and yorkshire parkin to name a but a few. Loads of games such as ‘shove ha’penny’, quoits, skittles, bagatelle, added to the enjoyment of the occasion, plus an hour of 1930s films from the yorkshire archive and a display from the Wakefield Morris Dancers. What a great event - truly appropriate for the occasion.
President Val Jenkins said ‘ The evening was lots of fun with everyone joining in, stepping back into the 1930s, when SI Yorkshire was created. It was a great event to end my year as president, stepping back to the time when the Yorkshire Club was created - thanks to everyone who made it possible’
All the funds raised were for the Yorkshire Air Ambulance - charity cherished by Soroptimists in Yorkshire.
