Celebrating their 50th year as a pillar of the Round Table 4 Club Family, the ladies of Hunstanton’s charter donned their best fascinators and ate cake at an afternoon tea party at Caley Hall Hotel on May 19th.

Chairwoman Suzy Mason said: “It was a lovely day. Our Ladies Circle national president came across and in total 21 ladies all had afternoon tea at Caley Hall Hotel. We had a quiz, balloon modelling competion and prizes for the most fascinating fascinator, speeches and yummy cake.

“It was a fantasic event to celebrate 50 years of Ladies Circle in Hunstanton. We were able to raise a toast to circlers past and present. We're looking forward to more friendship, fun and fundraising over the next 50.”

An international organisation with more than 130 groups around the UK alone, the Ladies Circle meets twice a month and unites local women aged 18-45 and allows them to make friends, try new activities and serve their wider community through fundraising.

You may recognise the ladies through their work on community projects, such as serving hot drinks and snacks at Bonfire night, supplying tea and coffee for the RNLI charity catwalk at M&Co and giving out water at the triathlon at Glebe school.

They predominantly fundraise for local charities and schools but also contribute to the organisation’s national charity, which was Marie Curie this previous year.

Their ethos is largely to have fun and socialise, and to try new activities that you wouldn’t normally think of doing yourself—these include sailing, pole dancing, power hoop fitness classes, to name but a few.

Hunstanton’s charter currently comprises of nine full-time members ranging in age from 19 to 46, and four honorary members that have passed the age limit but still participate. Each member brings their own unique perspective to the table that allows for truly diverse experiences.

There are currently plans to launch a sister association called Tangent in the area that is for ladies that are aged over 45. There are also plans to launch a Circle in Norwich. Currently, the nearest Circles are in King’s Lynn, Wisbech and Dereham.
