The hall was packed for the event which featured Phil and Laurine and the Isle Singers who sang a number of romantic songs, many of which were dedicated by members of the audience.

Songs included ‘Always on my Mind’, ‘When I’m 64’. ‘Moon River’, ‘Everybody Loves Somebody Sometime’, ‘My Guy’, ‘Nearness of You’ ‘My Heart Will Go On’ (from Titanic), ‘You’ll Never Walk Alone’, and ‘There, I’ve Said It Again’.

Heart themed refreshments were provided by Sue Crowe, helped by Sara Gilbert serving during the interval.

The evening raised £203 towards St Andrew’s Church extension fund for toilet and catering facilities in the building.
