Sussex YFC Ball 2019

The Sussex YFC ball was held on Saturday 19th January 2019 at Wellshurst Golf and Country Club.  The night went really well and was enjoyed by all. We had members and non members who came along to enjoy the evening.

The Hampers that the clubs created for raffle prizes looked amazing. There was some great dancing and a fun dance competition at the beginning of the night to kick things off.

Our thanks to Wellshurst for hosting the event and for everyone who helped with the preparations for the evening and to Mary for preparing the table decorations.

Thank you to all our Sponsors
