From time to time the Social Committee organise special events evenings - this was their first with the Cockney Pride group from London.
The evening started with David Arnold welcoming everyone and saying that Waiters would soon be bringing around the "Bangers and Mash". This was a hot plate of Sausages, Baked Beans & mashed potatoes with onion gravy. This was washed down with bottles of drink brought from home.
When this course had been cleared away, the Cockney Pride appeared on stage dressed as Pearly Kings & Queens but supporting musical instruments.
The famous Cockney Pride band
They started with a rousing selection of songs including all the standard Cockney songs about London.
