Worshippers dress to impress


YEE-HA! Worshippers got into the country and western spirit when they dressed in appropriate gear for a themed fundraising social event in aid of their church.

Around 60 people from St Paul’s Church, Hasland, attended the event at the Temple Normanton home of lay reader Stephen Wright.

They enjoyed a meal of jacket potatoes, wine and soft drinks, prepared and served by St Paul’s social committee, which organised the event.

Arizona Wes entertained the company with his songs and music.

A quiz, prepared by the rector of Hasland, Father Malcolm Ainscough, was won by Hilary Gilliver and Brian and Val Crampton.

Thanks have been expressed to Michael Joyce for the loan of his marquee, and to David Knott for helping to erect it.
