The Salt Hill Society founded at Slough's Three Tuns Inn 237 years ago celebrated its annual dinner at the Marriott Hotel, Langley - just in time before the ban on public gatherings put a temporary end to the country's social life.

It was the first dinner to completely sell out since the society was founded in 1783.

The society was founded to protect people from 'rogues, felons and highwaymen' in an age before there was a police force. Nowadays it fundraises for the community.

Society secretary Phil Astles, managing partner at Kidd Rapinet solicitors in Slough, said: "It is a great society and we are confident that it will continue to grow, providing great relationships, networking opportunities and a fabulous evening out for all."

Speakers at the dinner included Admiral Sir James Perowne, constable and governor of Windsor Castle - while comedian and musician Richard Digence entertained, taking everyone on a trip down Memory Lane getting all 237 members joining in with Land of Hope and Glory and Rule Britannia.
