The Latest Parish Social: A Tea Dance
This took the form of a Tea Dance and happen on Sunday, 31 August 2014 in the Church Hall. It featured live music and dancing with afternoon tea. And what a splendid occasion it was. Many thanks to the Social Committee and the organisers not to mention the many parishioners who came and supported the event. A tidy sum was raised which will go towards the refurbishment of the Church Hall.
We'll Meet Again - Social Night
Friday 25th April saw the first parish social of the year, taking a wartime theme. Many of the organisers and guests came dressed up in costumes from the era and we were treated to a wide range of entertainment with a wartime theme.
With the parish hall decorated with flags, posters and standard lamps,the parish choir performed and led us all in singing favourite songs from the time; Fylde Ukulele network entertained us with a wide variety of music from the 1930s and 1940s; and we were treated to short play depicting the recruitment of Local Defence Volunteers.
Rationing wasn't on the cards though, and we were well fed with hot-pot and cakes!
A big thank you to everyone who contributed to a great evening.
