The presentation of a bottle of champagne seemed an appropriate way of marking 50 years of dining out each month in the best of local pubs and restaurants by 90-year-old Harry Treadwell, a member of Shoreham and Southwick 41 Club.
The presentation was made by John Colwill, chairman of the club, during drinks in the garden of the Waterside Inn, Shoreham Beach, before dinner in a nearby restaurant.
As its name suggests, the 41 Club, which has an extensive national network, is the club into which members of Round Table move when they reach the age of 40.
Members of the local club meet to preserve family friendships and remember the good times they enjoyed as young business and professional men making their way in the world.
Mr Treadwell is the sole surviving founder member of the local club.
