Birthday bash to remember

Party

Finstall and Cofton Hackett WI held their 81st Birthday Party at Finstall Village Hall, writes Jessica Wilson.

The tables were attractively set out with red and white tablecloths, each with a vase of daffodils. Everyone was greeted with a glass of wine or fruit juice when they arrived.

Business was kept to a minimum so that we could get on with enjoying music of singer Nigel Strong, ably assisted by roadies Bill and Cedric who set up the equipment and provided backing music.

Nigel has a magnificent voice and sang many songs made famous by singers from the 60s and 70s such as Matt Monro, Perry Como, Neil Diamond and Andy Williams.

He began with Born Free and The Way You Look Tonight, and we sang along with Catch a Falling Star. A wonderful trip down memory lane.

We finished the afternoon with a delicious buffet provided by the members and drew the raffle, with most people getting a prize. Everyone agreed that it had been a party to remember!
