2018 got off to an active start with the Hangover Hike on the morning of the 1st January. About 60 walkers joined in for a refreshing amble around Cockfield’s footpaths.
February 3rd sees the start of the Country & Western Dances when probably our most popular entertainer, Kevin Barry, will be back with us Tickets will be at the usual price of £6 on the door and there will, of course, be a bar and barbecue. Doors open at 7.30 pm for an 8.00 pm start. Kevin is a very experienced and versatile entertainer and it looks like being a good evening. For those of you who have never been the dances are themed Country and Western but some entertainers play more C&W songs than others, the atmosphere is always very relaxed, people dance as they wish, there is no line dancing or anything formal it is just a good local evenings entertainment with a quality entertainer singing live – and all for £6!
