A further celebration event then carried on into the afternoon at TheBacchus Hotel in Sutton on Sea.
This included medieval dancing by the Linkage performing drama group, George with slayed the dragon, the Mature Movers busted some moves and there was music from Peter Lee.

He also wants to thank everyone who came along and supported the event, alongside Dave’s Diner, Helen and Colin Matthews for providing the horses, the Linkage group, the Bacchus, Adrian Benjamin and entertainer Peter Lee.
