Report on After Hours Group Event - Winter Social, Saturday, 4 February 2017
- Led by Lizzie Cooper
It was Saturday night at the De Lacy Motor Club in Brotherton and the place was buzzing. Real fires were burning to combat the cold outside and there was an eclectic mixture of seating arrangements from squashy sofas to benches, dining chairs and footstools.
There was hardly a spare seat to be had as the evening began with a performance by Sherburn & Villages U3A Jammers group. This gang of guys (and one gal), enthusiastically played their guitars and sang along to a mixture of rock classics. The audience joined in noisily too – and the large room was filled with sound.
After a short break, the U3A’s Ukelele Group (UKE3A) performed a similarly varied mix of folk, country and rock standards. They played their ukuleles while singing along and a percussion accompaniment was provided by willing members of the audience.
The bar was busy, the raffle lucrative and the sausage casserole supper was voted excellent. The evening closed after a further performance by the Jammers Group. Thanks go to Lizzie for arranging this very successful After Hours event.
