28th August Your Feet

When "Lady" Sandra Abbott discovers that her husband of 40 years is having an affair with her best friend, she seeks refuge in London with her estranged, older sister Bif. The two could not be more different - Sandra is a fish out of water next to her outspoken, serial dating, free-spirited sibling. But different is just what Sandra needs at the moment, and she reluctantly lets Bif drag her along to a community dance class, where she starts finding her feet.


On Saturday 16th June, over 80 people gathered at The Byre in Cold Ashby for the village’s annual church fundraiser, ‘Proms in the Paddock’. The weather stayed dry and the evening was a great success thanks to a fantastic live performance from Kettering Town Silver Band, who entertained the audience with a stirring setlist of foot-tapping tunes. Amongst them, the band played Land of Hope and Glory, Jerusalem, and a lively melody of singalong Disney classics - needless to say, there was plenty of patriotic flag-waving and hearty singing. In total the event raised over £600 for St Denys church in Cold Ashby.

Deborah Sampson, Church Warden, said: “Thank you to all those who joined us, we were delighted to see so many people and lots of new faces. Once again the band was superb and we were treated to a magnificent sunset as they played their finale (see photo on opposite page). Next up is our Open Gardens weekend and we look forward to welcoming you all on Saturday 28th and Sunday 29th July.”
