Community club celebrates 18th anniversary – 2-4 Club (From The Northern Echo)

A PARTY has been held to mark the 18th anniversary of a community club in north Durham.

A special tea and entertainment was laid on at St Joseph’s Catholic Club in Ushaw Moor this afternoon. (Tuesday, May 12)

It was held to mark the anniversary of the Tuesday 2-4 Club, which was launched in 1997.

At its height the club had around 90 regular attendees and still has around 60 members.

The event gave old friends the chance to have a reunion and catch up.

Lilian Sowerby, a member of the team, which organises the club, said: “It went absolutely brilliantly. We had a good turnout and it was absolutely marvellous.

“The lady who cut the cake, Monica Smith, is our oldest member and is 93 years old.”

Mrs Sowerby said new members are always welcome at the group, which runs every Tuesday from 2pm to 4pm, and costs £1 a week to cover tea, cakes and biscuits.

She added: “People get friendship out of the group and it gives them a social life. We play darts and dominoes and do a quiz and play bingo.

“We welcome new members of all denominations and people come from the surrounding areas to attend.”
