Matt Broughton reports on his Surprise 40th Birthday Party:

I’d like to thank everyone who managed to make it to the Cricket Club for my ‘very early’ 40th party.

Really great to see you all.

Kate is very greatful for all the help she got with the food and preparations.

I had a great time and I’m touched by all the effort made to keep it a surprise.

    What a great birthday party, thank you Matt.

    Kate did so well with the organisation and to keep it a secret from you.

    Great to see you enjoying yourself so much with your family and friends.

    And the cake, how amazing is that, and the likeness to you and also the Chevin!

    Mighty night Matt. I think OAC has a few potential ‘Strictly Come Dancing’ contenders!
