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 !


" The Tabby Cat Trolls"- we donned fancy dress, cowboy hats, tinsel, Afro wig, Punk outfit  and proceeded to strut our stuff to songs - "Witchdoctor"  "You should be dancing"- with X factor judge masks on( to be honest we could hardly see what we were doing with the masks on but this just made it more hilarious !) and then a brief "Billy Jean" by Simon Cowell- also known as Phil Wilson.

We had practiced for hours at a time, but with the help of Darren Wain who put us together a sound track, we pulled it off- and Yes we were shouted back on for an encore !!

We are putting some photo's on the gallery/event  part of the site so take a look if you want a laugh.


The event raised over £ 300 for the park so was well worth all the effort and we got excellent feedback from those that came along- THANKS to all that helped us and all that bought a ticket and joined in on the night. We cannot do it without you ! 

Thanks Bek for and Rob for trimming up the room you made it look great, and thanks to Darren for the soundtrack and lighting.

Thanks also to Angie and Paula for helping out in the kitchen on the night. You did us proud.
