The Wedding. Undoubtedly THE event of the month, if not the year, was the wedding of June and Geoffrey on the 25th October. A good number of their fellow residents at the church to wish them well and fortunately the weather was reasonable. All the public rooms in the clubhouse were given over to the respective families and friends of the bride and groom for the whole day for their private celebrations but on the following Saturday afternoon, the 1st of November, June and Geoffrey hosted a get-together exclusively for the residents. This included and intriguing performance by a magician, a member of the Magic Circle, and a long time friend of Geoffrey’s. A number of photos taken during the day are attached but more can be seen with the longer article on the Blagdon Village home page of this website.

Halloween. The other one-off event of the month was almost overshadowed by the wedding, but not quite. This was a Halloween party combined with a special wizard and witches quiz. The last Friday of the month is traditionally Quiz Night, a very popular event in the monthly calendar, but even more so on this occasion. It was good to see so many residents make the effort to don their Halloween fancy dress and enter into the “spirit” of the occasion, as the attached photos show.
