Farley Farms, normally known for its Farm Shop, was transformed into the venue for the Saturday Barn Dance. It was heavily over-subscribed, but everyone was fed and, from the looks on so many faces, thoroughly enjoyed themselves.

The Band was provided by Neil Lydiatt, Deputy Head at Arborfield Junior School. Frank Rawlings, a former chairman of the Parish Council, took these and most of the other photos on these pages, and his skill shows through.
