Around fifty of Swayfield’s “Seniors” (anyone 60 years of age and their partner) attended the 2015 Christmas Party at the Village Hall and what a brilliant evening it was. The Hall was, as usual, beautifully laid out and very festive.
On the afternoon of Sunday 15th November a number of people were seen entering Swayfield Village Hall in 1940’s period dress. There were ladies dressed as Land Girls, dressed in pinafores, one in furs, others in headscarves. There were gents in Zoot Suits; one, a spiv-like character with Trilby hat and thin moustache, had an armful of wrist watches and nylon stockings for sale.
Why? I hear you ask. Well, it was first to have “Tea & Cakes” served from the best bone china before being treated by the Fol Espoir Theatre Group to a hilarious production of “Instructions for American Servicemen in Britain”.
