CLUB DAY COMBINES WITH CHURCH FETE
Glorious weather made for another successful Club Day. For the first time, the Church Fete took place during the afternoon, adding significantly to the number of attractions. Also new this year was a fine array of vintage cars and an egg throwing competition that had very messy consequences for the less successful competitors.

Other attractions included the zippy dipper, a bungee run, bouncy castle and bingo. The football, tug-o-war and children's sports were, as usual, much enjoyed by competitors and spectators alike.

This year's Brian Cattell cup winner was Max Murrell.

Roll call at the Westbury Inn

Club members and about 30 fancy dress entrants assembled at the Old Vicarage. The parade through the village was led by the Wells City Band, and  Fancy Dress prizes were awarded at the Westbury Inn by Mr and Mrs Bob Sparks. The pirates then handed out sweets and free vouchers for sideshows during the afternoon to all entrants.

After the roll call of members at the Westbury Inn, the parade continued to St Lawrence Church, where the traditional Club Day service was presided over by lay reader Richard Brown.

Nearly 100 diners enjoyed another excellent lunch, prepared and served by Jo Bush and her team from Mendip Buffets (tel: 01934 732269). After-lunch speaker was Philip Hawthorn (right), who entertained diners with a series of hilarious comparisons between living in Westbury and living in London.
