Lots of people came to our Christmas Fayre which meant a lot of cake, mince pies and mulled whisky was consumed so just as well there was a band playing to top it all off!

Music by Uffington 357 –¬†a band from West Norwood (London SE27) playing a beautiful blend of soul, funk and Jazz. with Sue Harvey, Myles Runham and… (I’ll update when I find out! sorry)
