AFTER 18 years as chairperson of Maybole OAP committee, Pearl Barton has decided to call it a day.

At the group’s annual dinner in the Town Hall on Saturday the popular “recycled teenager” was presented with a bouquet of flowers and a portable TV from Gillian Durrant and Derek Walker on behalf of members of the committee.

Pearl took over from Kay Cuthbert in 1995 and as chairperson, over the years she organised summer trips, outings to the pantomime and a yearly dinner for members.
