Retired teachers celebrate

The Scarborough Retired Teachers’ Association is celebrating its 50th anniversary. 

Members enjoyed a lunch at the Raven Hall Hotel in Ravenscar with Tim Tubbs as guest speaker. 

The association, which welcomes local ex-teachers and colleagues who retire to the area, meets regularly for a variety of activities including monthly coffee mornings, speakers, visits and holidays.

Anne Swift, ex-president of the National Union of Teachers, presented a certificate of lifetime achievement to John Morley for his work with the local and county associations of the NUT.

John was admin officer for SRTA and spent 15 years as secretary of the Amicable Society, the area’s oldest children’s charity.

His wife Anne received a bouquet for her work as the current SRTA secretary.
