EMNETH Methodist Chapel celebrated its 100th birthday with a weekend of special events.

It all kicked off on Saturday night with a dance at Emneth Central Hall, attended by around 130 people.

The dance raised around £750 for the chapel, which will go into the general church fund.

On Sunday, a special celebration service was held in the chapel which was attended by members of other chapels in the circuit, as well as ministers from around the area and the deputy Mayor of King’s Lynn.

Rev Graham Thompson conducted the sermon and the service was led by chapel minister Rev Den Bulloss.

Jacqui Huggins, mother of celebrated banjoist Sean Moyses, performed at the service and also at the dance, playing her banjo and singing.

Following the service, a buffet tea put together by Mave Ashcroft was enjoyed by everyone at the hall.

The celebration events were organised by David Thompson, Anne Thorpe and Rev Bulloss. David’s wife, Judith, said lots of people commented on how well organised it all was.
