After 28 years in recess, the Blighty community was able to once again enjoy a Debutante Ball.
Held on May 3 and organised by the Blighty Netball Club, a capacity crowd turned out at the Blighty Hall to see five young ladies make their debut.
The couples were: Rachel Oddie and Ethan Mills, Jemma Lostroh and Jordan Hicks, Talei Holm and Michael McRae, Le Shai Morris and Riley Agosta and Rachael Barnes and Ryan Twemlow.
With all five girls having an association with the Blighty Netball Club, this made it easy for the debs to decide on a colour scheme for the night — the Redeyes’ red and white club colours were the obvious choice.
The partners complemented the girls beautifully by choosing black tails.
Blighty Netball Club life member Megan Tonta was joined by her husband Allan to receive the debutantes.
Mrs Tonta spoke proudly about the long tradition of the Blighty Netball Club, which began in 1968 as the Blighty Basketball Club.
Other life members Maree Hovenden, Judy Plattfuss and Nicky Burke were also present.
The 200 guests in attendance were captivated by the couples as they performed their dance routines.
Many hours of dance practice under the excellent instruction of Vicki Ackers ensured a top performance.
