Mary Saint Pett Road

Well, what a night! 120 people turned up at Pett Village Hall on Saturday February 2 in a variety of outfits. There were Agnethas and Anni-Frids, some Bennys and Bjorns as well as the occasional Pierce! Others dressed up in holiday garb suited to a Greek island. Why? To enjoy singing along to Mama Mia. There was Moussaka and Greek salad, as well as a truly yummy baklava. There was also a raffle and everyone seemed to have a great time, singing at the top of their voices as well as some doing a bit of dancing at the end! The proceeds of the evening will go to the hall funds.

Such a successful evening could not have happened without great efforts by many people so thanks to the Village Hall Committee and others who organised such a great time, not forgetting Tim Jury and Paul Fountain who made significant contributions to the catering efforts and finally thanks to everyone who came along and made the evening what it was.
