From Horningsham Church we moved on to the lovely function room of the Full Moon Inn in Rudge. There was comfortably room there for about 3 dozen dancers and partners, a bar, a warm fire (did I say it was cold in the Church?) and even enough space for determined Morris dancers to play and dance. Though, as the photo at the top shows, we did do a little cobweb hunting on the ceilings with our hankies.
It was an excellent meal, served promptly and attentively. The crumble was a highlight for me!
Kevin proposed the toast to the immortal memory of Cecil J Sharp, our new Squire proposed the toast to Mrs Oakey, our founder, and thanked a number of people, in particular our out-going Squire Ken, who was presented with a weighty tankard (immediately taken back for engraving). We took a moment to remember lost friends.
Then there was a touch more music and a lot more chat, before we made our way back out into the cold, for a little recuperation before the evening’s entertainment.
