Celebrating community club’s silver anniversary

Slice work: (l-r) Mary Wilde cuts the cake with Susan Whiting and Susie Robertson

A Hampshire community club marked its silver anniversary with a specially-baked celebratory cake provided by our south region.

The Meeting Place is a weekly get-together in Lower Froyle which was founded 25 years ago in 1990 by villager Annette Booth to bring residents together for a chat over coffee and cake, and to answer a few domestic needs.

We’re one of the club’s newest neighbours because in nearby Upper Froyle we are regenerating the former Treloar College and its landmark Burnham House into high quality new houses at Froyle Park.

In the same community spirit, Susan Whiting, marketing manager at Linden Homes South, dropped in to the Meeting Place on its silver anniversary this month to deliver a specially-made cake.

The event coincided with one of the group’s oldest members, Mary Wilde, celebrating her 85th birthday, so she was given the honour of accepting the cake. She has been attending for the last 22 years.

Susan Whiting said: “Congratulations to The Meeting Place! To have lasted 25 years shows what an important role it plays in Froyle.”

Susie Robertson, one of the Meeting Place organisers, said: “The Meeting Place was started as a way of bringing people in the community together and we’re delighted to be celebrating 25 years of doing exactly that – here’s to another 25!”
