Well what another fantastic Indigo Blue Christmas party we had such a fab time. Thank you to all who attended. But mainly a huge thank you to Dick & Rita on the bar, Rick on parking and for all his help before and after, the chip van and all of you who came, danced, drank, sang, played air guitar and made the night such a great party!
