Thankfully the worst of the forecasted weather missed
Roehampton, so it was just right for wrapping up warm and, for a
lot of the younger members, a chance to accessorise with an array
of glowing, flashing and spinning items that were on sale.
There was also entertainment from FeFe the stilt walking Fantasy
Fairy, Gomez the Glow Ghost and Fernado the Fire Juggler as well as
a traditional coconut shy.
A whole roasted pig with all the trimmings added a theatrical
element to the evening, while the smell of deliciously fragrant
mulled wine went down a little too well! Anticipation grew,
the crowd held their breath and it was time for the main event! The
spectacular fireworks display was set to an eclectic soundtrack of
music and dazzled everyone - lighting up the Golf Course and
But the night was far from over as after the last firework had
fallen it was time for Jester Jingles to entertain the younger
members with his magic show and DJ Smooth and his team to take over
with the junior disco which actually had whole generations of
Members of all ages up and dancing until the last limbo has been
completed and it was time to leave.
A big thanks to everyone involved in making the event such a
huge success. See you next year!
