Valentine’s fancy dress competition won by a ghost
Lisson Grove over-50s club crowns an unexpected winner of their Valentine’s Day fancy dress competition
CHARLIE Chaplin, Hawaiian hula girls and the unexpected figure of a ghost all enjoyed Valentine’s celebrations at a Lisson Grove over-50s club this week.
About 50 people wore their finest fancy dress for the event at the club’s weekly meeting at Greenside Community Centre.
Flowers were awarded to the best-dressed attendees – with the ghost (club member Jean Miller) one of four people to claim a prize.
Dolly Cuthbert, 82, who has run the club for five years, said: “It was a lovely event. Everyone was there to have some fun and they all seemed to really enjoy it.

“There was lots of food for everyone, line dancing, exercises and, of course, bingo which no-one wants to miss out on.”
Last month, Ms Cuthbert won a prestigious Westminster Council Living City award for her work in running the club and organising social events, lunches and monthly trips to the seaside for members.
