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 recovered

BARN DANCE & BBQ (7 September 2001)
When 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 year.
