PLUS goes Platinum (Press Release)

February 21, 2011

Celebrations were in the air this weekend as members of Barking & Dagenham Plus joined with their counterparts from across the country in Wellingborough, Northants. The occasion: to mark the Platinum (70th) Anniversary of PLUS – formerly known as “Eighteen Plus.”

The Saturday evening was dominated by a magnificent party at the Hind Hotel, featuring live entertainment from former X-Factor contestants “Two 2 Go.” Earlier in the day PLUS had also held its National AGM at the same venue.

Barking & Dagenham Plus’ chair, Gemma Crader, 21, said:

“Eighteen Plus was founded as a social organisation for young adults, and we’re still going strong after seventy years! I had a great time meeting up with friends from all over England. I’m also looking forward to more events like this throughout the rest of the year.”

Barking & Dagenham Plus meets every Tuesday evening at the White Horse Inn in Chadwell Heath. New membership enquiries are always welcome. For more information please phone Joe on 07958 669339, or visit our website:
