2009 Christmas Ball Acclaimed a Huge Success

Last Saturday, following much preparation by members of the Schools Parents Society, 220  parents and their guests enjoyed the annual Parents Society Ball, held at the School. With the theme of Money, Money Money, following a Drinks Reception held in Ante-School and Ante-Chapel, everyone proceeded up the stairs to the Dining Hall, which looked enchanting with its decorated lining and beautifully prepared candlelit tables. A delicious meal followed, prepared by the Shropshire catering company, Roslin Caterers. With a chefs hat and apron allocated to each table, carvers were nominated and during the meal, Spanner in the Works entertained guests with their antics around the Dining Hall.

After the presentation of raffle prizes, the band, Abba Arrival, began to play and dancing ensued until the early hours. Guests also had the opportunity to try their luck at the casino arranged by members of the Whitchurch Round Table. Bar services were provided by the local company, Tipples.        
Sue Dewhirst Chairperson for the Parents Society commented, This years Parents Society Ball Committee worked hard to ensure that during the Schools 125th Anniversary Year the Christmas Ball was particularly special and I thank all those involved for making this happen.
