Around 45 ladies have celebrated the first birthday of a very colourful local group.
The Red Hat Society began in America in the late 1990s but has had great success in the UK.
The society’s name comes from the poem ‘When I Am An Old Woman I Shall Wear Purple’.
Members are encouraged to be colourful: with those under 50 wearing lilac clothes and pink hats, while those over 50 wear purple clothes and red hats.
The Woodbridge branch of the group, the Blooming Fuchsias of Woodbridge, were set up a year ago for people to make friends and support each other whilst also taking part in activities.
