Vice-Chairwoman Caroline Wallace thanked the many individuals and local businesses who had generously sponsored the evening and was presented with a cheque for £400 by Cheryl Hadland, the evening’s main sponsor.

After dinner, prepared and cooked by young chef Charlotte Morisetti, guests entered into the fun of an Auction of Promises.  Lord Fellowes rounded off the evening in great style taking questions from guests.
