COUNTY LINE EVENTS 2018
October 20th – NIGEL SLATER (SOLD OUT)
Firstly sincere apologies that this site has not been updated until now. Blame too many holidays and too much wonderful sunny weather!!
NB – Socials are selling out during the evening of the previous Social, so to get tickets, you will need to buy them that night, or contact Alan or Doreen the week before. If you are unable to come, please let us know so we can re-allocate your ticket.
Please write the NAMES of the people you wish to sit with please If we are not sold out, you may purchase tickets on the night, but you may not be with your group.
A disco will commence events, and be interspersed with the main act.
You will need to bring your own cold drinks, but tea and coffee are available,
and at the small cost of 50p, you can also purchase freshly made rolls.
The wonderful Chris James is a County Line favourite. Not only does he judge the crowd and play what people want, but he is a fantastic guitar player. He played Sorrento, to which everyone just stopped and listened.
CREAM TEAS READY TO GO
Cross Country Magazine inserted our Gig List in their last publication, from which we got 2 visitors. They were on holiday, and saw that Chris was performing for us and had to come along.
A wonderful array of prizes, as is expected from the Doreen and Paul team. Thank you to all the people who bring prizes in as well – it all adds to our Charity Pot.
Two more donations were made to charity over the Summer: £100 to the Victoria Education Centre Railway. £150 to Andrew’s Project – raising money for a wheel chair which was damaged, £100 to Braeside Hall and £100 to the Alzheimer’s Society in memory of Mark and Pearl.
The Committee are on the look out for new bands suitable for our venue. If anyone knows of a band they feel would fit the bill, please let one of the team know, and we will endeavour to go and hear them, with a view to booking them.
As a committee, we are so proud of the atmosphere that our Socials generate. We are aware that sometimes the seating is an issue, or rather the inability to access the floor in time to start the dances, so we may need to have a rethink. The problem lies in seating around 80 people without compromising the dance floor. Any suggestions would be gratefully received.
We are very keen that those who attend fill in request sheets, so that we know we are going in the right direction – hopefully you saw the list of dances on your table as a reminder. If Alan doesn’t have the music on the night, he will make sure he has it by the next Social, and if there is something you later think of, please don’t be afraid to let us know – there are contact details on the “Contact location and links” page.
HOW FAR HAVE YOURS GONE?
Between now and Christmas we are holding a County Line bottle and bag competition. Any photos will be displayed monthly, and in December each one will be given a number and put in a draw for a mystery prize. There will also be a prize for the one that has travelled the furthest distance. At the moment we have Austria and Spain.
