Diamond Anniversary Party 1957 -2017
Cllr. Roger Newstead, Mayor of Reigate and Banstead BC and invited guests joined us to celebrate our Diamond Anniversary in September. Mr Mayor presented certificates to our day centre volunteers who were winners of the Mayors Volunteer Award for 2017. We were entertained by Carly-Jane, singing a selection of songs from the past 60 years, and ended the afternoon with a balloon release competition.
