Where did 2005 go. It doesn't seem like a year since we last held the party and thanks to a huge amount of time and effortby Alan Abel at Mullingers, a record number of tickets were given out, 195. So why did only 144 turn up.
It was a good clear night and a lot of food and gifts were prepared but 50 didn't come so much was wasted.
If you want a ticket for next year no problem but please use it, don't collect extra in case a
friend/neighbour may come.
The organisers, Tim Leonard and Richard Crabtree would like to thank the following:
Kind donations of money goods and services were received from The Rotary Club of Watton & District, Watton Chamber of Trade, Watton Town Council,
Bowes of Watton, Watton Produce Company, Gary Wright (Gary's Plaice) Emily Rutterford, Somerfields, Norma Sussames, Breckland Wines and Father Christmas.
The catering staff at the school for cooking the food and the Friends of the School for helping
to serve it. The young people who came along and served out the food, provide entertainment and looked after the needs of
our guests. St John Ambulance who always help us. Father Christmas handed out prizes.
Special thanks to Rev Roger Pawsey, Westfield and Junior school students for opening the entertainment so well,
