Farmers of Eskdale have a ball

 
 
 

THE annual Eskdale farmers’ dance was held in the school sports hall earlier this month.
The photo shows the committee members: Joanna Morris, Caroline Ritson , Chris Wood, Glen Brodie, chairman,
Helen Storey, secretary/treasurer, Andrew Elliot, Elliot Cavers and May Reid
A good night was had by all, even though there were fewer people.
A three-course hot meal was provided by Skitby House, Smithfield, and the band was Highway who played to a nearly full dance floor most of the night.
Langholm Rugby Club ran the bar and all the profits made went to the club’s funds.
The following businesses kindly donated prizes for the raffle: Border Vets, C&D Auction Marts Ltd, Tynedale Farm
Supplies, Andrew Miller, Ark Vets,
Johnstone Tractors, Lloyds, Ross Weir, Appleby Creamery and Langholm Rugby Club.
