The floorboards of Bolivia Hall will be bouncing under the dancing feet of revellers come Saturday, November 10 as the Tenterfield Anglican Church puts on an old-fashioned bush dance to take people’s minds off the drought.
Armidale band, the oddly-named Patterson’s Curse, will be providing the entertainment.
Reverend John Cooper said the evening isn’t a fundraiser, but rather giving the community an opportunity to escape their drought woes for a night and lift their spirits.
“It’s a night out when you don’t have to put your hand in your pocket,” he said.
“Everyone’s welcome. We’re all affected by the drought in the community. Whether you’re a farmer or a business, all are doing it tough.”
The whole family is encouraged to come along. Festivities begin with a barbecue from 6.30pm before the band starts up at 7.30pm, rolling on until around 9.30pm.
The aim of to have a relaxed, fun evening, even if it’s sitting around having a chat and watching the moves on the dance floor.
“We’re not all dancers,” Rev. Cooper conceded.
Soft drink will be provided, or you can BYO. Call Rev. Cooper on (02) 6736 1086 with any queries, or just come along on the night.
