Pembroke Bridge held a 90th Birthday celebration for Joy Whitelock, who has been playing her favourite game for a very, very long time!  

Joy, along with her late husband Mike, travelled far and wide to compete in bridge tournaments far and wide.

Irene Delahunty said: “It was a true pleasure to entertain and acknowledge such an accolade of being able to continue playing at the grand old age of 90!

“Joy was presented with gifts and a birthday cake and had a wonderful afternoon tea celebrating with all her bridge friends at Pembroke Bridge Club. Congratulations Joy!“
