She has been serving clubs and societies across Solihull for the past 25 years – now it is time for Jayne Crump, a stewardess at the West Midlands Bridge Club in Solihull, to receive some pampering.
Regular visitors to the Bridge Club on Warwick Road, including Mayor of Solihull Coun Kate Wild, gathered recently to celebrate Jayne’s 25th year of serving refreshments to clubs, societies and a variety of functions held on a daily basis at the club.
As well as ensuring members of the Bridge Club are kept well hydrated, Jayne also helps to host organisations like the Rotary Club, the Probus Club and The Inner Wheel.
“We have a lot of clubs and societies come here to use our facilities and I, along with my husband Aiden, provide the refreshments for most of them,” Jayne, aged 51, said.
“It’s a social occasion for many people in the community, particularly for members of the West Midlands Bridge Club. The club runs itself really – there are a lot of dedicated volunteers.
“It’s a place where they can come and meet people and spend a few hours where they feel safe. I have enjoyed meeting all sorts of people over the years.”
Jayne’s background is catering and after she got married, the family decided to move into the Bridge Club full time.
Jayne celebrated her 25th anniversary at an afternoon tea, which is held every month at the club.
