Ladies carry on cruis­ing

Ormskirk Advertiser - - Front Page -

AP­P­LEY Bridge Com­mu­nity As­so­ci­a­tion’s Ladies Night saw more than 90 would-be Kate Winslets, in­clud­ing many mem­bers of the All Saints Church fam­ily, win­ing, din­ing and danc­ing in a cruise-themed evening on Fri­day, Septem­ber 29 at the com­mu­nity cen­tre on Ap­p­ley Lane North.

The night was held in aid of Macmil­lan Cancer Care and Ap­p­ley Bridge Com­mu­nity As­so­ci­a­tion and raised a to­tal of £1,006 via ticket sales, raf­fle and art auc­tion.

The com­mu­nity cen­tre was trans­formed into a lux­ury liner, and guests were wel­comed by a Scot­tish piper and drum­mer.

The ladies en­joyed a bucks fizz re­cep­tion fol­lowed by lasagne and salad, rounded off with Eton Mess for dessert and DJ Danny of Team Theme pro­vided the mu­sic.

Chair of the or­gan­is­ing com­mit­tee Mrs Naomi Joyce said: “This was our first ladies night and it proved to be a re­sound­ing suc­cess so we hope to hold a sim­i­lar event in the not too dis­tant fu­ture.

“Our next fundrais­ing event is Ap­p­ley Bridge Christ­mas Market on Sun­day, Novem­ber 19.

“We were very keen to pro­mote the bonds of friend­ship and com­mu­nity in our village, but re­mained a lit­tle bit ner­vous that we might not be able to pull off a Ladies’ Night in our com­mu­nity cen­tre.

“We needn’t have wor­ried, as the ladies of Ap­p­ley Bridge cer­tainly know how to party and fully em­braced the evening, mak­ing it a re­sound­ing suc­cess!”
