Double 90th Birthdays for Wirral KFA
Two very special ladies, who are held on high esteem by the North West KFA and Wirral KFA in particular, recently celebrated their 90th birthdays and both are still active supporters and participants of the KFA.
Margaret Davies and Pamela Horton are both Founder Members of the Wirral KFA which is celebrating its 40 year anniversary this year. Margaret is currently the President of Wirral KFA and Pam was previously the National Delegate North West, an office she held for 6 years representing the NW KFA at National until 2000 as well as being President of Wirral KFA for many years.
Pam’s husband, Jim, was instrumental in getting us the Empress Ballroom at the Winter Gardens in Blackpool for the Championships and he also helped the working party to secure a very good deal!
Sadly Pam moved away a number of years ago but still follows and supports Wirral KFA whenever she can and attends rallies and events wherever possible.
Margaret has been a member of the KFA for over 50 years since she moved to the Wirral and joined Joyce Parry’s Class at Hilbre High School in West Kirby, continuing on through teacher changes and class relocation and is still a loyal member attending two classes per week, fully committing to whatever dance or exercise is being executed. Members still remember Margaret “shaking her booty” with the best of them during a Bollywood rally a few years ago. She says that the KFA keeps her “feeling young & mobile”.
Wirral KFA Committee arranged a special celebration lunch in October to mark both these 90th birthdays and Pam travelled up from Wiltshire with her son especially for the day. They were presented with beautiful plants for their gardens, as they are both keen gardeners and we celebrated with a special birthday cake complete with candles.
Both ladies admit that the KFA has enriched their lives in so many ways, providing very fond memories to recall as well as keeping them fit & active to their 90th birthdays and beyond.
Just goes to prove that along with the benefits of the regular exercise provided by their classes, the friendship and support from all their KFA friends makes all the difference to your life.
These Wirral Ladies are an inspiration to us all.
