Bob Hayes, LGS68 Committee, stated: “Mr Lawson (85 years of age) gave an incredibly humorous speech in which he advised us on how to cope with the problems of ageing.

“After a quiz, video presentation, awards ceremony and excellent meal, the evening was rounded off with music provided by Esler Burke.”

“Formal photography was by John Gibson, Sporting Images NI.”
