Huge thanks are now due to the team who contributed to our successful event.
Layla and Stef Brown, Faith and Jackie Fahy, Dilys Jones, Christina Meiklejohn, Judy Forrest, Simone Teitler, and myself. Together, we have managed to raise more than enough to cover all our costs.
Viv Gordon, trimmed the overhanging branches by the BBQ. Glen Young, The Scout Master, mowed the lawn. Don Tanswell, moved everything and back again! Simone Teitler and Iain Ross, Tim and Julie Porter, Clare Hawtin, Hilary Webster, erected gazebos, blew up balloons, decorated, and prepared the scene for your arrival.
Vouchers and Raffle Sales
Clare Hawtin, Simone Teitler, Angela Tuthill, as always, stood there all day looking lovely, running the vouchers, CDs and DVDs sales.
Tara Curran and Victoria Garland helped your little ones create the pirate hats they were wearing all afternoon, and as always, all kiddies craft activities were sponsored by Viv Gordon.
Our Donkey was drawn by Sarah Lenton and Pat James looked after the game, hugged all your children, and gave them medals.
The BBQ Dream Team
Tony Tuthill and Iain Ross followed by Brian Durrans, and our local Cllrs, Gary Malcolm, and Gary Busuttil. Angela Tuthill peeled and chopped 8 Kgs of onions (not a dry eye in the house!)

Keeping you entertained
The kiddies and some adults, too, had their face painted by the lovely Grace. Lee the magician mesmerized the audience with his talents and finally everyone enjoyed a piece of the best cake that has been looked after and kept away by Simone Teitler, and then ushered to the scene with the help of Hilary Webster and Iain Ross.
Our huge thanks to each and everyone of you who gave us a hand to do the clear-up.
From the bottom of my heart, I thank you!
With love, Suzanne x
