"Joyce Shrubbs, this year celebrated becoming an Octogenarian. On Sunday, 8th. April 2007 she held a celebration party at the R.A.F.A. Club in Bedford. Just over 50 of her many friends from the diverse activities in which she has been so much involved were present. 7 Group R.O.C.A. were nicely represented. The sound level from the many conversations and laughter indicated the enjoyment of those present. Sue, of the R.A.F.A Club prepared an excellent buffet lunch. The birthday cake was superbly decorated by an icing aeroplane. Joyce made a short cheerful speech of appreciation, and making suitable references to those younger and the few older friends."
