Impromptu Garden Party/Dancing at Mel's, 4th July 2024

 

Our usual hall at Laverstock was being used for voting, so as it was a dry evening, we decided to gather at Mel's garden for some dancing, eating, chatting, boating and swimming.  We charged a small fee and were able to give this to our 2024 charity.  Much laughter doing the Barn dance over the bridge, the "river cruises" and the wild water swimming.  Shame it wasn't a bit warmer!  See photos and film clip below.

Tea Dance at Alderbury Village Hall

Sunday 12th May 2024 - Mickey Page

 

We held our afternoon tea dance on 12th May at Alderbury Village Hall and were entertained by Mickey Page who is a favourite of several of our dancers.  He is down to earth and sings in his likeable Hampshire accent.  He sang a lot of our dances (Codigo, Galway Girl, Into the Dark Night, J'ai du Boogie, Just a Memory, Just Want to Dance, Nickajack, Old Soldiers, Ribbon of Highway, Telepathy, Things, Til You Can't, Whiskey Bridges, Memory Lane, Save It for a Sunny Day ... a really good range). 

We had gorgeous cakes, tea and coffee served all afternoon by our lovely volunteers; Tish, Tracy, Carol and Teresa.  They worked tirelessly under pretty hot conditions.  So many thanks to the ladies who go the extra mile making fabulous cakes: June, Mary, Sheila, Teresa, Sarah, Carol (sorry if I have not noted any other names) and those who bought them too.  Cake and hot drink were included in the ticket price, but after that, all the refreshment money contributed to our overall total for the charity.

The raffle raised £132.  Thank you, as always, to Marg for selling tickets and to everyone who brought raffle prizes.

It was lovely to welcome back Ray and Karen and AJ, plus all our supporters from Netley and Southampton areas to make it such a good turn out.

Thanks also to Jan and Pete, Mike M, Emma, Dave & Elsie and, in fact, everyone else who helped set up and clear away at the end.

We ended the dance with Best of Friends which was quite emotional as Mike was unable to dance due to a back and hip injury and then honoured the Trilogy.

We made £301 towards our 2024 charity fund, so big well done everyone!
