Family Fun Night 2010

The event was scheduled to take place before Christmas 2010 but due to the adverse weather conditions, all the snow we had to postpone until Jan 2011. We hired out the Scout hall on Mansfield Road, Intake and had a fantastic night. We had bingo, a pop quiz, wrap a person in a toilet roll to make a Mummy game, and a disco by Billy Bodkin who entertained us for the night. To top it all some of the Friends group - namely Tracey and Lynne and Traceys husband and son decided to put on an X Factor type turn- no-one knew this was happening and so it came as a complete surprise when the act was announced by Billy. Thanks Billy !
