Maxton Hogmanay Ceilidh 2008

Maxton Hogmanay Ceilidh 2008

Maxton revellers celebrated the New Year with music, song and dance at a friendly ceilidh in the village hall. Although missing our regular accordionist, Steve Kendal, who is recovering from illness, the traditional Hogmanay event was successfully continued with energetic dancing and some excellent musical performances.
Special highlights were Tom’s Tartan Medley - a sort of vocal ‘Mexican Wave’ - that got everyone singing, piping selections from Paul Mitchell, and the multi-talented Jessica Bennett who played the saxophone and gave a display of Highland Dancing.
The ceilidh was supported by folks from the parish, returning Maxtonians and some welcome ‘first-timers’ from the surrounding area, all of whom entered into the fun of the evening and contributed to its success.
Thanks to everyone who helped with the organisation both prior to the event and on the night itself.
Steve was very much in our thoughts throughout the evening and all his friends in Maxton send him very best wishes for a speedy and complete recovery.
Proceeds from the ceilidh will start our charity fundraising for 2009.


Tom - Resplendent!

Jessica - Twinkle-toed.

Sitting one out!

Full Swing!

Paul - Tuneful.
