Friends of Johnson Community Hospital host 1940s night at St Nicolas Church Hall, Spalding




Memories and fashions of wartime Britain dominated a charity dance night in Spalding for the town's Johnson Community Hospital, now in its tenth year.

St Nicolas Church Hall, off The Vista, became a ballroom as The Dream Belles (Lucy Crunkhorn and Amanda Watton) and Major Swing (violinist Gabrielle Sutcliffe, Ros Horton on ukulele, guitarists John Trowsdale, James Horton and Paul Norris, with Elaine Taylor on double bass) played music from the era.

The Friends of Johnson Community Hospital were behind the fundraising event in aid of the hospital and trustee Angela Newton said: "It was a very pleasant night and we enjoyed the music, buffet and watching people dance."

A message on social media from the Friends said: "A big thank you to everyone who attended our 1940s Dance and who helped to make the evening a success.

"We had a wonderful raffle and tombola, thanks to the generosity of many kind people, and many thanks must go to our wonderful entertainers, The DreamBelles and Major Swing, who got us singing and dancing all evening long

"We had fun and many people worked behind the scenes, both in the run-up to and during the evening, to whom we would like to say 'Thank you so much'".
