2016 Summer Party
FOLSC Shorts & Shades Summer Party
What a night we all had! Our earlier publicity advertised the FOLSC ‘Shorts & Shades’ party as the event of the local summer season and judging from feedback received from our guests this was no mere exaggeration.
The Village Hall was decked out to reflect summer holidays and our Pimms’ bar quickly put arriving guests in the party mood. We were royally entertained with two excellent sets by local band Twisted Vinyl. Dressed in slick dark suits combined with low lighting, smoke on stage and a sultry night, the parallels with the Fab Four were clear and the atmosphere was much as it would have been in Liverpool's Cavern Club 50 years ago. Despite their youth the band performed some fantastic covers of hits from the Shadows, Elvis and much else besides, finishing with what else but ‘Twist and Shout’!
In the interval burgers and sausages were served, complemented by a fine array of salads; many thanks to Martin Underwood for being our BBQ Chef for a second year. ‘Pudding’ was provided in the form of ‘stop me and buy one’ ice cream which certainly hit the spot on a sticky July evening. We will report the financial result in September but early indications are good that profits delivered should result in a landmark figure for the fighting fund. At this stage we would just like to thank all from our community who turned out in strength to party with us and also to the hardworking team at the Long Sutton village shop who sold all the tickets to make this a sell-out event.
