LAST Saturday evening the Wells Village Hall was looking her finest, with tables dressed and aglow with candles.

The occasion was another of those superb candlelit suppers presented by the 'Revellers', specialists in the noble art of television escapology. The scene was one rife with the buzz of good humoured banter, and the clink of wine glasses, as we settled back to enjoy a three course meal including a choice of two puddings, either of which we were promised would have cholesterol levels rising so quickly there would be a danger of blood warnings being posted!

The entertainment was by special request a return visit of the Malvern Singers, songsters, who have enchanted audiences from Bruges to Brum. Led by MD Edwina Ward, the choir sang a host of showstoppers, opening with appropriately Tonight from West Side Story, then taking us through numbers from Show Boat to Aspects of Love, whilst beguiling us with a very wistful Somewhere over the Rainbow.

Then to prove they had more in their locker than song we were treated to a humorous piece by Ian Gane, a poem by Ron Hunt and a rousing foot stomping accordion duet by Margaret and Stephen, one tune in particular would have shattered the morale of the resident woodworm!

The whole affair was presided over by Geoff Rowswell with his usual aplomb, being an artist he has the happy knack of presenting the full picture without a lot of unnecessary details.

As we made our way home the though uppermost in our minds must have been, what a pity such evenings cannot be cloned!

For your diary, the final event of this season's Reveller's calendar will be a Casino Evening in April, but more of that nearer the time.
