Lastest Post - The 3B’s Fashion Show
July 2, 2015

It was a well deserved full house for the 3B’s (Bernadette, Becky and Beverley) Fashion Show held in the Winsford Village Hall on 26th June in support of St. Margaret’s Hospice,Taunton.

And what a snip….£10 got you entrance, a glass of your favourite wine, excellent canapés and a goodie-bag, not to mention a very professional fashion show courtesy of Kallyanne, Minehead,and a cadre of top local supermodels!

The models, Beverley, Jenny L, Nicki, Jenny and Gwenda, elegantly and confidently strode the stage and the catwalk showing off a sophisticated range of Summer outfits, from flowing tops, trousers and dresses, all in fine cotton and linen materials in a range of beautiful pastel shades to more dynamic polka dot greens and blues.

Fashion Show Gerry & Steve

 

The models were ably assisted by their dinner suited ushers Steve & Gerry and everyone had their moment in the spotlight with a great lighting show provided by Robin Lockwood and music from Steve Pledger.

Fashion Show Audience

 

What followed was more like what might be seen at the annual Sales in Oxford Street, with ladies sorting out the clothing and jewellery they wanted and disappearing in to the Committee Room to try them on! Much fun was had, much business was done and the name of Kallyanne became much better known.

 

Fashion Show Steve Pledger

 

A musical interlude by Steve Pledger followed and the audience were treated to quite a few classics like Piano Man, Dancing in the Dark and the most suitable of endings, Wonderful Tonight which was played in complete silence ….until the end!

Then the Raffle took place, announced by Julie Draper of St Margarets, withFashion show David raffle winner

many excellent prizes a notable winner being Brigadier David Godsal who

won a mini manicure set!!

 

The event raised £943 for The St. Margaret’s Hospice so ….in the words of the song….Everyone’s a Winner!

The feedback for the show was 100% positive and we believe it may become an annual event so look out for news on the village website.

Finally Bernadette, Becky and Beverley would like to say special thanks to Jenny Williams, Liz Hillier and Pam Gascoyne for all their help in the background  a big thank you to everyone else involved who gave their knowledge, expertise and time, without whom this event would not have been such a success.
