Event: Beach Themed Night
Date: Sat 23rd July
Time: From 1pm to 11pm
Location: Playing Field
Project Manager: Charlene
Tickets: Free

Finally the beach theme day arrived and although British weather was as expected, a great day was had by all. The children loved the fairground rides, face painting, pony rides and all the other stalls. With the men flexing their muscles and the ladies, proving they were definitely a match, a very competitive Tug a War ensued. With lots of grunting and yelling the British Sugar team triumphed! Well done to all who entered. The children also had a go!
Then as the evening progressed lots of laughter came from the antics at the surf simulator and everyone danced to the fabulous "Martha's Wood".
Swish would like to thank Jolene Osler and Emma Fowler for the excellent painted faces, Chrissie Reeve and Tommy for great pony rides, Danny Nicholson, Dale Osler and Shane Reeve for all their help with setting up and packing away, Nicholsons machinery and the talented "Martha's Wood". We would also like to thank all who came and supported us, we hope you enjoyed it as much as we all did!

Following the success of last years Masquerade Ball, Swish decided to host The Glass Slipper Ball.
With an exciting line up of entertainment which included the duet Pride with their cover of all the popular tracks from the 60's to the current chart toppers and performing this year was the jaw dropping vocals of Robert Farrel. Leading us all late into the night was the dance floor filling sounds of KJ Entertainments, complete with their very own Dan the balloon man!!
Doors opened at 7.30pm with a champagne reception and canapés served by Southery's very own Nigel Bird
Our resident photographer Dave was on hand to take those memorable portrait pictures with a little makeshift studio in the corner.
Our thanks to everyone who came along and made it a special evening.

Pics from the ball are £5 each. Our thanks to Mr Bee for this special Swish price.

And they’re off……

Our first event of the year was race night, where we had a great turn out whereby you could have a flutter, enjoy the atmosphere of an exciting time at the races - all no further than your local. There were 8 races, with options of betting on some or all of the races and the chance of winning a cash prize or you could choose to place a bet on a triple or dual forecast before the event. The top prize of £100.00 was won by John Clemments.

Swish would like to thank all those who supported Race night, a good time was had by one and all and a fantastic £436.00 was raised.

Thanks every one!
