The Barn Dance was a brilliant success. Well done Suse and thank you to all who helped.
Jill Elliot did a great job of getting even the most reluctant onto the dance floor and the challenge of learning the dances led to hilarity all round. It was great to have live music which was supplied by Mark Wallis on the accordion.
This was the main fund raiser for us this year and we made a profit of over £400. This was not only due to the evening being a sell-out but also to the generosity of some local businesses. Chris Wheeler and Spinning Weal contributed towards the raffle prizes and The Veg Box, Pullin’s and Cross Tree Stores provided discounted goods for the refreshments. This helped to make it a truly community event.
This profit will go towards our work next year both in the orchard and in providing
reskilling workshops and awareness raising events.
