Family Night a fun event

familyAlthough the weather had a hint of winter and number attending were low, the first Tolmie Family Fun Night was a great evening with lots of fun and laughter had by all.

The children in attendance thoroughly enjoyed playing a selection of games, and one adult even took on the challenge of a game of Twister.  Special mention must also go to those who made sure the karaoke machine didn’t remain silent, with a variety of musical era’s and genre’s being covered.

With plenty of music, dancing, fun and laughter had by all, the night was without doubt a fantastic evening.  Thanks must go to all those involved in the preparation and organisation.  Let’s hope this is the first of many Tolmie Family Fun Nights.
