It was all mince pies, sherry, dance and comedy at this year’s Rotary Club concert at Riverside Caravan Park.

The Rotary Club of Bognor Regis hosted its annual concert last week at the park in Shripney Road, Bognor Regis, inviting more than 300 senior citizens to the show.

The dance troupe from the Arabesque School of Performing Arts in Chichester set the show off with a bang, singing and dancing in a range of costumes.

This was followed by comedian Simon Sands who organisers say had the audience in stitches from first to last with his combination of gentle patter traditional British humour and the odd cheeky suggestion.

Rotarians Martin and Pavard, with some gentle accompaniment on the piano from Chris Hicklin who stepped in at the last minute, also raised a few laughs, organisers say.

The Littlehampton Town Band played a mix of light and classical music and accompanied the carol singing to round off the performance.

A spokesperson for the Rotary Club of Bognor Regis said: “Our thanks go to all concerned in helping and we look forward to a repeat next year.”
