The members of the Puddleducks Playgroup committee did a truly fantastic job decorating the village hall in a country and western theme, for their fundraising hoedown held on Saturday evening, 11th October.
'Wanted' posters, straw bails, cacti and cartwheels, complemented by hundred of feet of hand-sewn gingham bunting, all contributed to an amazing scene.
And guests entered into the spirit of the occasion, donning their check shirts, denims and American western style hats and boots!
Over 120 people enjoyed the hoedown style dancing and country music.
But bangers and beans were off the menu, for fear of a methane-generated fire risk! Instead, a delicious fish & chip supper helped to sustain the energy of the dancing.
Among others, a sincere stetson doffing 'thank ya mam' goes to Bar Brawling Missy Malone, Shady Lady Pybus, Sharp Shooter Proctor, Bandit Brooke, Dixie Dell, Mad Dog Simpson, Pistol Popping Peel and Cow Tipping Clifford. Well done ladies!
Lots of photos of the evening on display in our GALLERIES section.
