Bourne End (Bucks) Twinning Association
Lawrence and Tracey Huxley gave us another great evening of quizzing on 15th June – thanks, folks! In jovial company our brains yielded up long-forgotten items that proved amusing and bizarrely useful. Fish and chips from Smiles arrived promptly halfway through to keep us going. Winners by a small margin were The Barbarians who received bottles of wine all round. Just hoping I never meet “a crash of rhinos”.
BEBTA choir continues to share a love of singing with the community. Lead by Alan Duncan and Barrie Reece, they visited Alfred Court on 24th June to give a short programme, including some songs from the musical Les Misérables. Residents were in good voice for a singalong and all then enjoyed refreshments.
