November 18th

Our Autumn Show was another great success. 71 of us sat down to a Fish 'n chip supper from the Alrewas Fryer before being entertained by Dave Fry and John and Anne Harris, known as ‘Dragonhead’.

We were joined by our Patron Chris Coburn MBE who drew out the first winning ticket in our Grand Draw. The first prize of £600 was won by Mrs. M. J. Ellis  from Walsall, net proceeds from the draw  were £5,000.75.

One supporter generously donated the cost of putting on the show which helped the event raise just over £1300. The Trust is very grateful for all the donations given on the evening and to all the helpers which made this event possible.

Autumn Show and Grand Prize Draw

Chairman David Dixon introduces the evening.

Dave Fry was first up to entertain with songs and jokes.

Dragonhead - John and Anne Harris - Folk, Cajun and singalong hits

Trust patron Chris Coburn MBE was introduced by Bob Williams.

Bob announces another very successful Grand Prize Draw to a round of applause, then Chris pulls out the £600 first prize winning ticket.

Mike Brown and John Bryan auctioned a brand new suitcase but it didn’t go well! One generous person gave £35 just to help out but didn’t really want it. So the suitcase will be for sale on ebay...

An extra raffle was held on the evening. May Brown is handing out the prizes.

Dragonhead join forces with Dave Fry for the finale.

All set for the Fish n’ chips. Table décor by Jill Bryan.
