Saturday Night Fever

Excitement as members anticipate the evening's entertainment....


Staff members rehearse in preparation for the annual traditional sketch ....

More photos of the performance itself will be uploaded later (much later!) but here is a synopsis of the plot:

HCC insist that the HMS staff give a talk on exercise and healthy eating.  The adult team share their favourite sporting pastimes in appropriate dress.  They then do an aerobic workout incorporating moves from their sports.

Elected band members are required to join in for prizes.

Finally, Jock, Jon and Jane promote healthy eating by drinking a freshly made juice whch inclues broccoli, courgette, beetroot and onion.
