NEW YEAR’S EVE – More than 100 people attended a village New Year celebration in St Mary’s Community Hall. The event was organised by Kevan and Lisa Lingard to provide a night where families could come together to see in the New Year. There was a disco and show from Sabden band The Kicks - with Kevan, a member of Herman’s Hermits, joining them for one of the Hermits’ classic songs. Potato pie supper was made and served by Jimmy Balmbra and Paula Leather who also were involved in organising the event and helped on the night, along with Jim Fort and Roxanne Leather. There was a fireworks display at midnight and all the proceeds will go to this year’s Sabden Live music festival in aid of the North West Air Ambulance. Special thanks to all those involved for their hard work in organising the event.
