Dear Mr Editor,
I was so pleased to see that the Half Moon is having a karaoke evening. My late husband would have loved it, as there’s nothing he enjoyed more than a little rock n’ roll on a Saturday night.
I would like to be there, but am a little nervous about what to wear, as it so long since I ventured forth socially, and is it all right if I come along as a single woman, as they are not always welcome?
Is there any chance that your nice Mr Winterborne Longjohns will be attending?
Amelia Badger (Mrs)
The Editor replies
Delighted to hear from you Mrs B, and a Happy New Year to you.
I understand the Management of the Half Moon will welcome everyone regardless of age and marital status. As for dress, we understand that some people will be wearing clothes from the 1950’s or 60’s, even rock n roll wigs, but this is not compulsory.
As for Mr Longjohns, alas we doubt that he will be tempted as there is no Wincanton Races on that day, and no-one has seen him in rock n’ roll mode for decades. But you never know, ma’am.
Like you, we are all looking forward to a great evening
