Letting our hair down at Coal Aston 22nd February

The Village Hall at Coal Aston was the welcoming venue for a "60's Night" arranged jointly by the Rotary Clubs of Dronfield and Drone Valley this evening.   With snow in the air Gail and I set off for the "frozen north" in company with Rtn Eileen Murphy of the Belper and Duffield Club and her husband Sean.  

When we arrived the hall was already pretty throng with people and the numbers swelled more during the next half an hour or so, ending with I would imagine getting on for 100 or more people present.

The band providing entertainment for the evening was a four piece group called "Therapy" - aptly named as three of its members were senior medical staff at Chesterfield hospital.

This was a fancy dress optional event so as often happens lots of the ladies went to the trouble of dressing up and the men (including me) just turned up (with exceptions).  

At the break a hot meal of pie and mushy peas was served.  Great pie wherever it came from.

As always at such events there was a raffle to raise a few bob for the charity accounts of the two clubs.   Fortunately Gail won the first prize to be drawn and had the pick of the prizes.    She then really excelled and picked up a large bottle of whisky !!!

It was a great night in company with many Rotarians from the two clubs and their friends.  We had a great night.
