Cockney Night 26th April 2017
Harold Wood WI held a social night, were joined by ladies from other nearby WI's and even had a few men join us. We had a Good Ol' knees up, singing along to many well known and loved songs. We were given Union flags to wave by our Pearly King and Queen and waved them patriotically when we sang along to Land of Hope and Glory.
John, the Pearly King sang and played a guitar both before and after the interval he and Terri entertained us all evening and their traditional outfits were a sight to behold. The pearl buttons made a wonderful sound as they walked amongst the audience.
Pie & Mash or Sausages and Mash were provided for dinner along with drinks. The pies and mash came from the well known east end shop Cooke's. The evening was rounded up with a traditional WI raffle.
