Annual Dinner and Dance April 2017

Hello Everybody This was our seventh visit to Lakeview Manor for our annual dinner and dance. Sunny spells and heavy showers were frequent throughout the day. Chris handed out the quiz sheets which kept everyone amused while they were having dinner. Soon we were on our feet dancing.  Chris was showing everyone his car, but I have to say he didn’t go far! (Oh I’m a poet and didn’t know it  ) As the afternoon progressed we had the quiz results as well as “Make me something from the balloons” competition.  Congratulations to the winners with ginger bread men and chocolates all round. More dancing and then it was time for a quick game of bingo. Yes BINGO in the middle of the dance floor organised by – yes you guessed it Quiz Master Chris lol! One lucky lady went away with £71.00 and a gentleman had £35.00 so not a bad afternoon for those two. There was more dancing to follow (Playlist below) It was a fabulous day, thank you to the staff of Lakeview Manor for looking after us. And last but not least, thank you to everyone that came along and made the afternoon so enjoyable. Look … Continued
