A surprise party was held for 82 year old Pat Defty who is celebrating 60 years as a member of the Midhurst Players.

Pat appeared in many plays and fellow member Eddie Lintott researched the archives to present ‘This is your Life with the Midhurst Players’. Pat is photographed with 20 friends who between them have notched up 652 years with the society. Chairman Jan Demain and newest member James Justesen age 15 were also there.
