Long-standing Society holds its 174th annual meal
Members and guests gathered for the 174th annual dinner of the Spalding Shipwreck Society.
The sold-out gathering at Spalding Golf Club in Surfleet enjoyed a three-course dinner and entertainment from a comedienne.
The group – full name The Spalding Society of Mutual Relief in Case of Shipwreck – was established in 1844 when Spalding was a port and the river was tidal.
It supports benefit members who have worked at sea and their widows with money raised at the annual dinner and sausage and mash suppers.
