On Saturday 9th March the Sidlesham Community Association hosted a successful Italian Night in the Church Hall.
The event was a sell out and attendees enjoyed a tasty Italian meal, a competitive quiz and some wonderful Italian music performed by members of Havant Light Opera. The two sopranos are also students at Chichester University and bowled us over with their singing of opera and Neapolitan songs. They were joined by their lecturer, who sang some rousing tenor parts.
A huge thank you to David Blackford who organised the event and did all the cooking with his son Tom, as well as taking time out to accompany the singers on his accordion. After the main course the quiz took place and the eventual winners were the WI who hardly dropped a point! Ali Merrett put in a lot of effort to make the quiz successful and it was much enjoyed.
With a raffle taking place as well the event raised a fantastic £662.00 to go towards the funds for a new community hall.
