The evening commenced with President Nita Eubank introducing the Harlequin Choir from Fletchertown. Its 25 members and musical director, Mrs Claire Louise Gregson certainly made us smile with their joyful singing. Familiar songs, including 'All kinds of everything', 'Annie's Song' and Claire's favourite, songs from the Seekers.
The buffet was welcomed by all, including our guests from Crosby and Plumbland WIs.
The choir continued with their second part after the sweets, savouries and the welcomed cup or tea.
Nita gave a vote of thanks for a very enjoyable and harmonious evening.
The competition - 'A pair of earrings' was won by 1) Ann Lister of Dovenby WI, and 2) Gilda Park of Plumbland WI.
The raffle was won by 1) Martha Robinson, 2) Joyce Bowness and 3) Evelyn Varty.
