PAWS July – Back to the 60’s

Pictures from PAWS back to the 60s nightOur July themed social this year was “Back to the 60’s” which was well attended by 44 members and 15 visitors, 11 of these being the Layer Ladies.

As with most of our themed events, members entered into the spirit of the night in an array of “Mini’s” and “Flower Power” outfits. The winner of the best dressed went to Angela Clark in her hotpants!

Everyone was given a glass of Cava on arrival and then Babycham accompanied our party food whilst we enjoyed a couple of quizs.  Then Ray Spiller turned up the music and we had the opportunity to dance to various numbers including the Twist and the Locomotion – which ended up in the Village Hall Gardens!  

There were also spot questions on various singers to which Vivienne Ohmke excelled.  I think everyone would agree it was another successful night and the reason why the club is as enjoyable as it is.

This month (August) there is no meeting, but our next get together is 24th September when “Frock Horror! Confessions of a Costume Designer” will be delivered by Pauline Baker. As ever, visitors are welcome at a cost of £3.50.  Details of all our meetings and speakers can be found on the diary on the home page of the Winstred 100 website.
