20th Lancaster ball receives big turnout.August 13, 2014 3:50am
Lancaster Football and Netball Club have celebrated its annual ball with more than 100 people joining in the fun.
At the Lancaster Hall, the club provided catering for the event along with entertainment from renowned musician and former X-Factor contestant Tyler Hudson.
Club president Rowan Bennett said the night was well received and that Mr Hudson was a hit.
‘‘It was a fantastic event, it really went off,’’ Mr Bennett said.
‘‘It’s quite the social occasion, people get dressed up and I think one of the reasons it’s so popular is because people know it happens every year and they look forward to it every year.’’
This year marked the 20th Lancaster ball, a feat Mr Bennett said the club should be proud of.
‘‘My wife and I have been in the area for the last 23 years and I think we have only missed one ball in that entire time,’’ he said.
‘‘It’s a great lot of fun and it gives us a real chance to showcase the club, because quite a few people from outside the club also attend. That’s what we are about as well we want to attract new members and new families and the ball plays a role in that.’’
