Last Friday evening a large number of the local community gathered in the field by Easy Bridge, Umborne for this annual event. It would seem that the changed timing suited most people as the turn-out was very pleasing.

Neville cooked us some great sausage sizzles with help from Carolyn and John and a profit of £90 suggested that people ate more than on the usual Sunday afternoon.

The bar was run efficiently by Teresa who with a little bit of help from Michael, did a great job on keeping people topped up, making a profit of £61.

In this same class was Sizzles Wingham who got the best laugh of the evening by totally ignoring Cherryl’s commands and going off to do her own thing, as it were!
