Annual Dinner Dance and Prize Giving

Strictly and X Factor are back on TV, the nights are drawing in, Christmas countdowns keep popping up on my Facebook, it must be time to start thinking about the Annual Dinner Dance!

This years event will be held at Hundith Hill Hotel, on Saturday 25th November, tickets are only £30pp with a discounted rate of £20 for 12-17 year olds. Ellie and Hannah are very excited to be allowed to go, and it solves the annual problem of arranging babysitters!! I remember going to my first dinner dance at The Castle Inn when I was about 14, mum has a photo somewhere!!

The menu and prices have been added to webcollect to make booking and payments easier, I have been asked to give final numbers by the 14th, so would be grateful if you could get your orders in earlier rather than later!

Dress code as normal is Fancy Frocks and Black Tie, so don’t forget gentlemen to make sure it still fits and it’s still clean!!! (That last message should be directed at my husband!!)

Last year’s event was fabulous, I have vague memories of JD leading a sing song between courses, let’s make this year even more memorable!!

Thank you, Andrea xx
