Commemorative pin marks silver

A cupcake and specially made commemorative pin were given to members of group AUCK 058 to mark the 25th anniversary of their group.

All twelve current members of the West Auckland group, plus special guest Hillary Barnes, the group's founding convener, attended a lunch on 30 May. They held their regular monthly meeting first (of course!) before launching into their daytime celebrations.

"Pauline Hingston gave everyone a chocolate bar as well as a commemorative pin, beautifully made her husband Neil," says Jenny.

"As well as a tasty lunch and glass of wine, the group were given a delicious cupcake served on a silver plate by Jill Townsend."  

Jill and Pauline are both founding members of the group, which was originally formed by a number of women who played badminton together. 

Jenny sent in this photo of their time together.
