    Caught on camera - the last ever meeting of the Marshside Tuesday Club which closed this week after over 100 years...

    Leader Mary Porter, 77 said that financial pressures and finding volunteers were two of the reasons that the club ended on Tuesday with QLocal Ormskirk reporter Roger Blaxall - booked to speak- taking these final photos instead.

    Widow Mary, a former nurse at Greaves Hall in Banks, has been a very active volunteer in a number of local groups and still sits on the PPG (Patient Participation Group) in Southport which was meeting on Tuesday evening.

    She thanked a number of folk for helping down the years including Joan Clarke who was sadly absent at the last meeting.

    How sad. Humans by nature are communal and the closing of groups like this is such a shame

    My late Grandmother, Dorothy Sutton used to regularly attend the Tuesday Club. What a shame it's closed it's doors for the last time - it was a great institution for the ladies of the district.

    It is Mental Health, the Government should provide help to groups such as this to keep them running, not just financial but also manpower to help with the running of the group.

    That's very true, especially as loneliness has a massive impact on the lives of people, particularly the elderly, these days
