Prizes for the best pumpkin: 1, Harriet; 2, Lacey. The Fancy Dress again gave the Judges, Kay and Sue a very difficult task as they were all deserving of a prize, however, in the six years and under class Angel came first, 7–12 was Chase and the adults winner was Carol Allen.
Thank you to Philip Greet who organised the evening and supplied the music.
