…at the Family Fun Evening organised by South Hill Women’s Institute last Saturday.
Around eighty people of all ages enjoyed a supper prepared by the ladies, and took part in quizzes and team games. Liz Moir compered the evening, with and without the help of a microphone, and we very much hope that enough cash was raised to put a seat around the tree in the new playground.

Full report and pictures also in the next Newsletter, due out at the beginning of June.
South Hill now has a growing number of friends on Facebook.
