Nov 20 2009
For the third year running our Annual Ceilidh took place tonight under the organisation of our Support Group, having been organised upto and including 2006 by the call out team members.
Taking place at the excellent venue and usual team Ceilidh location of St Mary’s Church Hall, Horwich, all present were yet again entertained by the fantastic ’Toll Bar Band.’ (who like last year had a few surprises up their sleeves with the introduction of some more new dances into the evening)
With numbers present reaching almost 100 a fun time was had by all, with team member Matthew Hailwood continuing to improve his dance technique whilst team member Paul Brain still maintains his usual two-left-feet attitude to all dances.
A raffle held on the night raised £137.50 for the team, thanks to the team Support Group ’Sales Team’. (Many thanks to all who supplied the many raffle prizes)
The team would like to thank all those who attended this annual event for their support (and sheer entertainment value of watching some people try their best to follow the dance moves!)
We would also like to yet again thank Hazel Kennedy of our Support Group for organising this year’s event, and her Support Group colleagues Iain Clarkson, Gillian Gregory, Johanne Lamb, Andy Murphy and Julie Thompson for their work selling tickets on the door, raffle ticket sales and dishing out the ’pie and peas’ supper to all present. (big thanks to callout list member Gillian Leigh who got the prize this year for the most tickets sold, bringing along her family and a large number of friends).
Next year’s date is provisionally organised for Friday November 26th 2010 at the same venue, so here’s an invitation in advance for you all to join in the fun. (and do not worry if you cannot dance, no matter how bad you are Support Group member Gillian ’two left feet and one minute behind everyone else’ Gregory will make your attempts look good!)
