A fantastic night was had on Saturday 27th July , at our fundraising music night, “Only Schools and Horses” featuring the fantastic BasketCase, on at Tubes nightclub in Melton (1st floor suite). The night was spent dancing away to great songs from the 70’s and 80’s and we had some brilliant fancy dressed “pupils” and well done to everyone who won a prize. Despite low numbers attending, everyone there joined in the spirit of the evening and had a great time.
We would like to give a huge thank you to BasketCase, Shane Mousely who compared and Tracey at Tubes nightclub for making such an enjoyable event.
