  • Lastest Post - Buddy Brilliant!
    February 17, 2018

    Never before has the village hall seen such a mass of dancing, waving and singing as Buddy Holly, aka Spencer Jordan, rock ‘n rolled us through Friday evening on the 2nd February!

    A packed hall of nearly 100 locals enjoyed their drinks and snacks whilst being entertained by songs that most of them remember the first time round! Talk about “Rave On”…it was manic!

    Spencer had West End theatre experience and tours with The Be-Bop-a-Lula rock ‘n roll show nationwide but he had one residing ambition….which he realised on Friday evening!

    Fun finally returned to Winsford on a cold February evening and we raised nearly £1000 on behalf of two excellent causes, Love Musgrove, which is currently attempting to raise £1mm. for the purchase of a third MRI scanner and The Minehead Cancer Support Club.

    We travelled back to the late fifties with such classics as Oh boy!,That’ll be the day,Heartbeat and many many others that Buddy Holly made famous.There was a 20 minute interval whilst the raffle was drawn and we were then treated to a host of well-known rock ‘n roll music songs authentically delivered by Spencer.

    The event was organised by Bernadette Hunt & Jenny Williams and supported by a team of helpers so a big thanks to all of them.

    It was such a success that people we’re asking when the next one is! Watch this space!
