Bourne End Christmas Fun Night in Pictures

Sadly, I couldn’t get down to the Fun Night myself but Dave Henwood did, all the way from Wiltshire along with his new pride & joy… a top knotch camera! Thank you so much Dave for acting as photographer for The Village Journal & sending these fabulous photos which show the busy & successful Christmas Fun Night 2015 & the wonderful community spirit on the lead up to Christmas! 🙂 

Dave added a little message…..

Having enjoyed last years Christmas Fun Night in Bourne End, I decided that a re-visit in 2015 should be put in the diary. For those that don’t know, I moved from Buckinghamshire to Wiltshire in 1995 but still return regularly to Bourne End and Wooburn Green during the summer months. Making the journey on a dark December evening though requires a bit more dedication but I’m glad I made the effort. It could have been Junction 17 to Junction 8/9 on the M4 but in this case I chose the Train which was far easier. A great evening was enjoyed by many and I think, it was even busier than last year with children of all ages seen having fun and doing a good job persuading mum to limit the mulled wine and dad not to hover too long at the Rebellion Brewery stand!

After a pleasant stroll round the village, testing out the ‘Night Portrait’ setting on the new camera, I called into SMILES for some well earned Fish and Chips. I’m afraid I didn’t manage to obtain either of the two ladies names that appear in the photographs, so, if you recognise yourself, please feel free to add some feedback. Until next year as they say…..well, until the spring anyway. Merry Christmas to you all.
