The Barn Dance 2014

After the willow basket making course, Paula and I created 10 floral displays!! in a very short time,  for the haybale tables in the big barn. All the flowers came from the garden. Everything was ready for the barn dance that same evening.
The proceeds will be going to Farm Africa.

It was balmy evening for a chance to feel cold anyway with all that leaping around.
The newly reformed Catsfield Steamers played for us.

Tim and Anne stepping out together.

The thing I love about the barn dances is that we get all age groups dancing and enjoying themselves together. I think this is quite special.
There is always a lot of giggling when people go wrong and there are smiles on everyone`s faces.

Anne, Tim, Gemma, Ian and James.

Gemma and James in full swing.

A bit blurred but fun anyway.

I even got Steve up to dance!!
(Good orb presence as per usual)

Great atmosphere, good fun and good food.


  1. Brilliant post Jen. It was such a good evening. I've never been to a barn dance before and after getting over my initial fear of dancing I actually had a really good night. me and James are already planning on coming again next year :)
    It was so lovely to spend time with you this weekend and a nice chance to get to know you better, I'm sure there will be plenty more opportunities like that in the future too :) x x x x

  2. Thanks Gem. Great to get to know you better too and many thanks to James for the info on summer pruning apple trees. I`ve done it.
