TREWERN Community Council held an afternoon tea in Middletown Village Hall to celebrate the retirement of Ida Hughes.

Ida has served on the former Middletown Parish Council and then on Trewern Community Council for 50 years.

Past and present county councillors, community councillors and clerks came along as well as Glyn Davies MP and Russell George AM.

Ida also served on GT Wollaston PCC, Middletown WI, Mothers’ Union, Trewern School Governors and Middletown Village Hall Committee and held office with some of the above again for many years.

“We wish Ida a long and happy retirement,” said Gill Corfield, chair of Trewern Community Council.
