SENIOR CITIZEN’S OUTING
(14 September 2002)
As the coaches left the village hall just after
mid-day, the sun ordered earlier in the week by tour organiser Ken
Banwell began to shine, and 56 senior citizens took off for a mystery
destination. The party headed south, ending up in Lyme Regis, after
which they adjourned to the garden centre at Ottery St Mary for cream
teas. Tour guides were Ken Banwell and John Barkle, with the back-up
team getting teas ready in the village hall consisting of Irma Cattell,
Jo Atkinson and Helen Allen, ably led by Mary Banwell.. We’re also
grateful to Martin West and Mick Fletcher for helping with the
washing-up. Unfortunately, a number of senior citizens were unable to
take part owing to ill health, and we hope they are all now fully
BARN DANCE &
BBQ (7 September 2001)
is a tractor shed not a tractor shed? Answer: when the Hardings
and Sealys are planning to host a party and/or a barn dance.
Hardly surprising, then, that the caller with the Backroom Band
from Priddy announced that it was the first barn they’d ever
played in that had fitted carpets. Other decorations by the
Harding-Sealy design team had transformed it into something more
like a night-club than a tractor shed, providing an ideal
setting for an energetic and enjoyable evening for participants
of all ages (of the 140 dancers, about a third had taken
advantage of the concessionary rate for school aged children).
The event was a fine example of cooperation between different
elements of the village: benches and trestle tables from the
village hall, stage borrowed from Footlights, transport supplied
by the Sealy and Stott families, and the bar run by chairman of
the Parish Council, Barry Haslam, all masterminded and
coordinated by Westbury’s answer to Fred Astaire, John Barkle.
Our thanks to everyone involved for making the event so
successful that people are asking for a repeat performance next
