100 events
100 table

On Wednesday 5th December thirty members of Blandford Methodist Church gathered for a surprise afternoon tea party to celebrate Mrs Phyllis Smith's one hundredth birthday. The hall was decorated with balloons and banners as well as pictures of famous people who were around in 1918 the year that Phyllis was born. The centre table was adorned with a beautiful looking and delicious tasting cake baked by a member of the Lunch Club as well as a floral arrangement in Phyllis' favourite colours.
On a screen were pictures of Phyllis in her younger days depicting her working life and her time in the WRAF. She proudly wears her RAF association badge on her jacket lapel.

There were numerous gifts and cards for Phyllis to open as well as enjoying an array of sandwiches, scones both savoury and sweet, cakes and trifle alongside friends.
Those gathered sang Happy Birthday to Phyllis when she blew out the candles on the cake. She loved the 100 on the cake sign that lit up like sparklers. To round off the event Christmas Carols were sung. Phyllis was then taken home exhausted but happy and pleased. It was special event for a very special lady.
