The occasion was marked by a 1957-themed party at The Vauxhall Hub, with veteran rockers David Sheppard and Vic Salter playing the hits of Elvis Presley, Bill Haley and Buddy Holly.

The PHAB Party was sponsored by The Freemasons of Social Lodge 93. Their representatives Charles Hall and Phil Symonds presented a cheque for £680 to the club and cut a special 60th birthday cake.

PHAB chairman Dennis Oram recalled some of the club's history and said: 'It is remarkable that it is still thriving after 60 years.'

The club meets at The Vauxhall Hub every Tuesday evening and has live music each week with top local bands and singers playing rock, blues and country music. PHAB extends a welcome to adults of all ages who enjoy music and socialising.
