During the 10th June 2016, Roy our Almoner accompanied by Pam his wife attended the 100th birthday party of Florence Manley in Felstead. It was a grand affair with approx. 60 in attendance plus lots of others who popped in from the school opposite.

Florence was full of beans and did not stop anywhere for long which made you think she was only in her 70’s. Florence lives in an alms-house in Felstead with very nice neighbours and garden as you can see from the photos taken by Roy. He said this was one of the more pleasant aspects of being an Almoner.


Florence’s husband was Bro J E Manley who was a joining member of the lodge during 1973 but sadly died during October 1981
