HILTON FEAST WEEK September Update
Hilton Feast week this year was a fantastic week of events and entertainment for all ages in the village. We try each year to improve on the previous year by trying new events and the feedback this year has been wonderful, so it is great to know it was a success. We fundraise all year to be able to put on a whole week of entertainment free of charge for everyone to enjoy, so your support for these fundraising events such as the quizzes and Burns night etc is essential. Otherwise we cannot continue to make Feast week such a full week of entertainment, for the village and local community to enjoy.
Well that's it - all packed up and over for another year! A massive thank you to the following people without whom Feast Week 2014 wouldn't have happened, as we rely on so many people to help!
Special thanks to;
To Eric Wilkinson and his stage crew for building the stage,and all the bar and BBQ helpers who helped out daily, and to the kids bar helpers too.
To Terry Wager for sorting all the electrics, and lights!
To Cheska, the Produce Show committee and the judges for a wonderful show on the Sunday. Please let Cheska know if you can help out on the committee next year.
To David Busk, Katie Dunn, Rachel Woods, and everyone involved in the songs of praise service, especially Ali Dunk and her junior choir who sang wonderfully.
To Helen, Lisa and the Art Show committee, for a great display of art and craft exhibits beautifully arranged in the village hall.
To Justo Perez, Adrian Snooke and Teresa Williamson for Entertainment Night. Justo did a fantastic job with compering the show, with several changes to his matching T-shirts and trainers! Also thank-you to all the entertainers who fearlessly performed on the stage, which made it a wonderful evening. Also thank you to Adrian for organising the licences for all our events too.
