The members were entertained at the monthly meeting by the husband and wife duo, "Fools Gold".
They gave renditions of songs from the Victorian era, some well known and others more obscure.
Each song was accompanied by projected pictures and an explanation of their origin.
The audience were invited to join in with some of the better known ditties, such as "Daisy, Daisy, give me your answer do" and sang with gusto.
Dave Scrafton proposed the vote of thanks.
