To mark the 200th anniversary of The Westmorland Gazette in 2018, we are publishing a photograph from our archives on our website every day this year.

Today's photograph shows Members of Milnthorpe Parish Church Over 60s Club enjoying their sixth annual party on March 8, 1963. The Rev E.B. Kitts (far right) presided. He was due to leave the parish for Ings.

The 'birthday' cake was cut by the three eldest present - Mrs A. Ellwood, aged 84; Mrs E. Parker, 86, and Mrs E. Lambert, 84.
