Community Council News, February 2018

Community Council Dances.

The Community Council Programme for 2018 got off to a brilliant start on the 3rd February when 101 people attended the February Dance.

Kevin Barry, wowed the audience with a mixture of C&W and memorable songs from the 1950’s to the 1970’s .

The March Dance on the 3rd is more Country and Western with Country Law entertaining from 8pm till midnight. Tickets will be at the usual price of £6 on the door and there will, of course, be a bar and barbecue. Just a reminder there is no caller, no line dancing  or anything formal it is just an evening of good local entertainment  – and all for £6!

 The Duck Race is at Earls Meadow on Saturday 31st March, what a fun morning that is. Ducks are £1.00 each and it’s fun for all the family (dogs are welcome too on leads please).
