Fancy Dress Halloween Success

Fabulous night was had by all. Tricks, treats, jokes, games, dooking for apples (yes I can spell), and some really fabulously crazy costumes to name a few. Everyone who took part had a great time and lots of goodies were eaten. Thanks to all who contributed. We are collecting as much cash as we can to help students compete in the Championships in Orlando, Florida 2014 and we are looking for sponsors to help us achieve this aim. If anyone has any ideas or can help please see Miss Kane our Secretary.

Please come along, have a great fun night and support us in this endeavour. This is an optional Fancy Dress event and as the Taxi Club has a family licence you can bring your children with you. There will be a buffet meal during the event.
