More than 100 residents aged between 73 and 92 attended the popular Over 73s tea event organised by the Hucknall Rotary and Inner Wheel Clubs.

This has been an annual fixture in the town’s calendar since the end of the Second World War and in recent years has been held at the Central Methodist Church Hall.

Presidents Ian Young (Rotary) and Nova Haskey (Inner Wheel) welcomed the guests as they sat down to a meat salad meal prepared by the members of Inner Wheel. For the first time pupils and staff from Hucknall’s Holgate School provided entertainment with the school band and vocalists as well as short performances from drama students.
