Catcott Village Association (CVA) held an Autumn Dinner Dance at the Village Hall Edington on Saturday 15th October. This was the first indoor event the association has run since the start of COVID.

The CVA organised for Chef Patrone Karl Hudson from the Milton Larder in Milton Village at Weston Super Mare to provide a lovely three course meal with several options to cater for all tastes. The waiting staff were very efficient and attentive and the bar was well stocked and managed. Our thanks to all involved for making such an enjoyable meal.

Around 50 guests were welcomed with a glass of fizz and each received a couple of mini bottles of wine at the table included in the price of the evening, which at £35 a head, was generally thought to be something of a bargain given the quality of the food, music and raffle prizes on offer.

The after dinner entertainment included two great sets by the band Macintyre from Broadwindsor in Dorset who managed to keep the dance floor busy all evening with covers of classics like Stevie Wonder’s supersition and Tina Turner’s Nutbush City Limits to Fleetwood Mac hits and lesser known tracks from the likes of Steely Dan. Well done Macintyre!

In between sets there was a bit of fun as guests paid £1 to take part in a game where everyone had to guess where a spinning wheel would land with a 50/50 chance of getting it right. Those who got it right went on to the next round until one winner was crowned. The winner was supposed to take half of the proceeds but Linda donated her winnings to the CVA! Thank you Linda!

The raffle was well supported and raised much needed funds for the CVA as did a Silent Auction for three star prizes of a Family Annual Pass donated by Hestercombe House and Gardens, a large hamper of goodies provided by Broadview Produce a.k.a Janet our chair of the CVA and a hand held games console donated by Dave the CVA website administrator. Many thanks to the members of the committee who provided the other excellent raffle prizes.

Ian and Anna received some small “thank you” gifts from the rest of the CVA Committee as they had done so much to organise the evening from calling on their family, friends and contacts to supply the Band, the Chef, waiting and bar staff, to organising the wonderful lantern decorations above the dance floor and the lovely table decorations.

All of the CVA committee were involved in setting up and clearing away afterwards. We are so lucky to have such volunteers willing to make these events happen and we are always looking for new people willing to lend a hand. We would really like to see more of the younger people taking part so that we can ensure the CVA and the Village Hall continue to support the local community and we can enjoy such lovely evenings for many years to come.
