Sea Shanty night!

What a good job it was that we ordered that extra key of Hobsons! With all those thirsty Sea Shanty Men and over 70 audience guests there was a very busy atmosphere.

By the first half of entertaining is the atmosphere was exhilarating – we had been cheered up no end. the Sea Shanty Men really warmed the cockles of our hearts! Were entertained with a number of songs appertaining to the sea, sailors lives, adventures and deaths! All very amusing and a lot of audience participation! The faces on the audience said it all, lovely glowing faces, laughing most of the time.

Mike Jenner gave a great tribute to Stuart, telling us about his forthcoming voyage around the U.K. this year and his plan to raise funds towards pancreatic cancer research.

I hope you will agree this event was a successful evening of relaxation and good fun! We thank the Sea Shanty Men for their time and entertainment and of course yourselves for coming along. The profits are helping tremendously with our refurbishment funds – THANK YOU.

This was a tonic welcomed by everyone this February 2020, possibly a prescription needed for many during the relevant miseries we are enduring at the present.

We look forward to many future events this year, please keep and eye on the website and noticeboards!

Thank you for your support!!

Burns Night!

What a wonderful night this was, to warm a cold January night up, enjoy a traditional Scottish meal, watch or take part in excellent Scottish dancing and feel the glow of the warm busy atmosphere and the whisky galore!

The day began early with much hard work from the group who prepared the room and cooked the meal. Thankyou to Jane, Pat Cherry, Pam, Chris, Elaine, Carolyn and Ros. Eddie, Paul, Rod, Geoff, Robin were excellent shiftas.

Mark Raybould was an excellent Master of Ceremonies, lovely kilt. Annie was most impressive on the bagpipes and Ganin most enthusiastic on addressing the haggis, complete with authentic accent. Thank you to you all, not forgetting a special address to the ladies again from Ken and excellent display from the Scottish dancers.

A most enjoyable evening, well planned, well supported by you all and another well remembered evening together.

Well done!
