THE FINAL "BASH" January 19th 2008
Although Westhoughton had ended on a superlative note in November with
two fine concerts at the Golf Club they were not quite the closing
moments. These were reserved for a spectacular finale at the beautiful
Rivington Hall Barn.
250 friends, past and present, all loyal supporters of the club gathered
together to dance, sing and chat about the years that have gone.
Rogues Gallery with caller Mick Peat (now 67 years young) provided the
dance music and there were song spots from many.
We cannot thank enough, all who came and created the fantastic
atmosphere. To say it was memorable would be an understatement. We thank
especially our wonderful band, guest artistes, Ruth and Ken (Risky Business), Strawhead, The Oldham Tinkers, John Leonard and John Squire,
The Tom Topping Band, Vin Garbutt, Maddy Prior, Julie Matthews, Pete
Abbott, John Wright, Tony Gibbons, Anthony John Clarke, Phil Beer and
the wonderful Bernard Wrigley who worked tirelessly to keep us all in order.
They had travelled hundreds of miles to be with us.
It was a unique occasion. Please enjoy our photographs courtesy of Roger
who has captured some of Westhoughtons finest moments and Ian who
ensured it always sounded great.
Good Luck and Love to All
