The event was excellent and Elly’s performance was very well received by the visitors.   Elly spoke to me prior to leaving and indicated she and her colleague Rosie had been very impressed with the day and the opportunity to come to Waimate and be part of the day’s entertainment programme.
Fortunately the weather was brilliant and a good day was had by all attending.
