Gossip Magazine and JPC Community Farm would like to say a huge thank you to all who attended our Christmas Party – It’s My Party and I’ll Wear What I Want To! A big thank you to Crathorne Hall Hotel who served up some delicious food and provided a wonderfully festive backdrop to our evening. Fun and antics was had by all – some in elegant evening wear, a selection of Christmas jumpers and prints and of course fancy dress!
We danced, dined and played games! All while raising over £1500 for JPC Community Farm.
We very much look forward to seeing you at our next gathering – The Valentines Masquerade Ball at Wynyard Hall Hotel in February.
GOSSIP HALLOWEEN BALL IN AID OF JPC COMMUNITY FARM-
Double, double toil and trouble, fire burn and cauldron bubble, another bewitching Halloween ball without a hitch despite attempts of many a witch! This year’s Halloween Ball saw all manner of ghastly ghosts, ghouls and goblins descend on Crathorne Hall for a spooky night of delight all in the name of fundraising.
Guests on the night included; Frankensteins monster, a family of skeletons, a batch of dead brides that’d leave you breathless among many more creepy costumes. Everyone in attendance was in agreement of the excellent night they had, the spooky and jovial atmosphere was simply infectious. With a very favourable three-course meal, a delightful selection of themed cocktails and splendid sounds from The Bobby Francis Experience (a fantastic local band) had everyone on their feet dancing the night away.
All in the name of a good cause, the night raised a fantastic £2,263 for the JPC Community Farm. We’d like to offer special thanks to all those in attendance as well as our sponsors of the evening including: Crathorne Hall, Studford Lodges and BMW.

We hit just the right spot with the amazing Annabel Pattinson serenading our guests during the reception and the fabulous Simon Carter’s crooning during our three-course meal.

Local artist, Charlie Barker provided us with 2 original drawings – one of Tiff Needell and the other of Dr Andrew Shovlin, who each signed their drawings for the winning bidders.

Words can’t express the gratitude we feel to all who played a part in making this ball a huge success – just buying a ticket makes you one of our valued supporters and we can’t thank you enough.
