Fylde Speakers Club celebrated the 40th anniversary of its charter as a member of the Association of Speakers Clubs (ASC) at the Dalmeny Hotel St Annes.
The day consisted of a three course lunch interspersed with toasts from members of the ASC and was topped off with a raffle.
A guest at the event was the national president Robert Ramsay who travelled from Arbroath to celebrate with the club.
Also attending were past and current branch presidents and guests from other regional speakers clubs including Wyre, Morecambe Ladies, Morecambe, Burnley and District, Standish, Burnley and Pendle, Garstang Ladies and Blackburn Castle.
“The first 40 years of the Fylde Speakers Club have been full of life and we are sure that the next 40 years will be equally as full,” said Lynne Martin from the club.
“We would like to welcome new members to the club which is open to everyone at any level of speaking whether you are terrified or love speaking in public come and join us.”
Fylde Speakers Club meets every second Wednesday at the Assembly Rooms, Dicconson Terrace in Lytham. For more information contact Lynne Martin on (07751) 936 555.
