For the third year running, Malcolm and Lynda Harding hosted another very enjoyable Barn Dance and Barbecue. Assisted by Andrew and Jane Sealy, they hosed down the barn floor, laid a carpet and built an extension to house the stage. It provided the perfect venue for an energetic evening for revellers of all ages, with about a quarter of the 130 participants having taken advantage of the special concessionary rate for children. Music was provided by the Backroom Band from Priddy, and caller Bevis Miller managed to get almost everyone to joinBarn1-03.jpg (13750 bytes) in. Come Dancing it may not have been, but at least there were no serious collisions or twisted ankles. The Friendly Society would like to record its thanks to everyone involved for making the event so successful that people have already started asking when the next one will be.

Annual Senior Citizen’s Outing
Saturday 13th September

The coach left the village hall at high noon in glorious sunshine to take 53 of Westbury’s senior citizens to a mystery destination. With tour guide, organiser and commentator Ken Banwell in the courier’s seat, the bus headed south-west, stopped for a break at Dunster, and arrived at Lynmouth in time for cream teas. Meanwhile, the back-up team getting supper ready in the village hall was made up of Irma Cattell, Jo Atkinson and Helen Allen, ably led by Mary Banwell. The Friendly Society is also grateful to Francis Stott for brewing the tea, and Mick Fletcher for turning out on a Saturday night to help with the washing-up. A shortage of musicians gave the Chairman his first chance to play the piano in public for more than forty years. Fortunately, the singing of  ‘Auld Lang Syne’ and the National Anthem was loud enough to drown him out, and there were no encores.
