rock and roll created a lively atmosphere for guests at the annual New Year lunch for the Anselm Avenue 60s Plus club on Saturday.

Some 59 diners enjoyed a traditional Christmas lunch followed by Christmas pudding at The Anselm Avenue Community Centre. The event marks the end of the club’s year as it was formed in January 2007.

An Elvis impersonator had people up and dancing after lunch – including a resident in his 90s who enjoyed a dance with his wife.

Jean Moss, club secretary, said this was probably one of the nost successful events with a great atmosphere from the start.

This year, the club subsidised the lunch from funds with donations from Fulchers Funeral Service, the wholesale supplier 3663, which supplied wine, and crackers donated by The Warehouse Shop.

The club meets every fortnight at 2pm on Fridays at the community centre in Bury St Edmunds and has a busy programme lined up for the coming year including a chairman’s quiz, an antiques roadshow and a talk on ‘growing old disgracefully’.
