Webster United Memorial Church celebrated New Year’s Day with a garden party at Manse Road in Bodden Town.
The church has been hosting garden parties for decades, giving Bodden Towners and visitors to the district an opportunity to take part in a day of fellowship – and also, of course, a chance to indulge in some delicious local food and dancing.
For most seniors, the party is a once-a-year opportunity to come out and socialize, dance and share stories of the past.
For youngsters, it was a day of learning about past traditions, dancing around the Maypole with the seniors, and picking presents from Santa’s tree.
Rexford Miller, Henry Leslie and “Lammie” provided music for the party.
