Caroline Street Social Club

We had a fantastic night on Friday for the fundraising event. It was absolutely buzzing and the consensus was that it fininished far too early. A little lesson in terms of organising was that we started too early and finished too early; it really should have been 9pm 'til 1am. We'll know for next time. It really filled up from about 10.30pm as people came on from the pub. The dance floor was packed and the tunes went down a storm. We had the hardcore Ska and Reggae 'til about 9.30pm and then the crowd pleasers came out after that.

The raffle was a major hit, the trick there being the choice of quirky off-beat prizes: Elvis jigsaw; plenty of vinyl, which people loved, like The Best of Bread, The Byrds plays Dylan, a double album of Beatles' Love Songs...; a retro mint sauce container...

So a very big thank you to DJ Bamboo and the Fresh Prince of Saltaire (Adam Cole) for spinning his records and to Tony for providing us with some speakers and taking his turn on the decks. And all the people who helped put it on. There was such a buzz that there has been a call for a monthly event. It sounds good to me...
