Cromer and Sheringham Ladies Circle marks 50 year anniversary
The Sheringham and Cromer branch of the international women's organisation Ladies Circle has just marked its 50th anniversary.
Ladies Circle was originally started in 1932 in Bournemouth for the wives of Round Tablers but now has an open membership for any women aged 18-45.
Sheringham and Cromer Circle began in June 1961 and among those joining the celebrations was founding chairman Edna Jones.
The current members headed by chairman Nikki Lond-Caulk welcomed past Circlers to the event at the Rocket House Cromer for Pimms and photos on the balcony before an evening of food and memories sparked by old scrap books.
Over the past 50 years they have raised thousands of pounds for local and national charities through events including casino nights, barbecues, sponsored slims, indulgence evenings and tombolas.

For several years they supported Round Table at their senior citizens' party, not just by sorting out the food but also by taking to the stage.
Along with other Circles nationally they have supported Race for Life from its inception by volunteering at the races in Norwich and by taking part in them. More recently they have been amongst the volunteers at The Big C's annual bike ride in Holkham. They have been active at an area and national level.
