No slow down at the Ho Down!
The Old West came to Beech last Saturday 15th June when over 70 villagers, family & friends, dressed up for the occasion, and partied to the music of the Celebration Band. The 20 or so young cowgirls and cowboys kicked off the evening by playing musical statues with Flossie the Horse!
Gill Scott (kindly standing in at the last minute for Bentworth School Head Teacher Jo Ayres, who was unwell) had some difficulty in selecting winners for the fancy dress competition.
The eventual winners were: Rudy Siggs, Jensen Siggs (best dressed cowboys) and Leila Harrop (best dressed cowgirl).
There were some very impressive adult outfits too –including Big Chief Peter Frost and a couple of very sinister Wyatt Earps!
The delicious western-themed food was all home cooked and dinner was accompanied by a quiz which brought back memories of our old cowboy pin-ups! The raffle made over £300 for the playground fund.
Then the dancing got started again, with a stunning vocal rendering of Ennio Morricone’s ‘The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly’ by The Celebration Band. They said they enjoyed the evening as much as we all did!
Please e-mail us if you have any photos you are happy to have published on the website or in the Newsletter, as well as feedback from anyone who attended, to help us plan future family events!

Waitrose backs Beech appeal!
Thanks to the Play Equipment Working Group, staff at Waitrose Alton have agreed to include the Beech Play Equipment Appeal as one of the charities supported through the company’s Community Matters scheme in June.
This is a really easy way for us all to help raise money for the project while doing the weekly shop. For more information about the scheme, as well as updates on the project itself, see our new Children & Young People section.
