this is only a small section of the residents
Over 200 people joined our conga, and a further 150 arrived at the centre for the evenings entertainment, which was provided by the groups who use the community centre. I was so over whelmed with the turn out that I had to fight back the tears as we conga'd along, it was even more special with the 2 Pipers, from the local Cadets, who had come along to lead the way. The night just flashed before my eyes, and although it was brilliant, sadly I never had a moments peace to take in what a fantastic night we had planned - nothing like blowing your own trumpet eh lol. Considering we never organised it as a fundraiser we still managed to raise over £150, which will go straight back into the community to organise further events. On a personal note it was a huge learning curve for me, I'm not the most 'forward' of people, don't like the sound of my own voice, dislike phonecalls - my Mum is the only person who can get more than a 30 second telephone conversation out of me, hate speaking to a group of people, one or two is okay any more and I clam up, but thanks to the fabulous friends, neighbours and residents I met on the evening I managed to keep it together and put my own insecurties aside.
