Shadwell in Bloom: the SIB committee held a very successful casino night at the Red Lion in Shadwell on Saturday, January 19 with the permission and support of the landlord, Richard. Nearly all the guests dressed in black tie and evening dress which made the evening look really special. There were two tables of blackjack and one of roulette and they were kept busy from 8pm until 10.30pm when the tables were closed. The evening started with a glass of bucks fizz and canapés. Everyone had £10’s worth of chips and the winnings were exchanged for Red Lion fun money. At the end of the evening the fun money was used to buy gifts in the auction. There was also an auction with real money. The real money auction had a framed signed Leeds Rhinos shirt, a holiday in a log cabin in the Lake District and six bottles of champagne. Everyone entered into the spirit of the evening and a good time was had by all. The money raised at the event is going to the SIB funds and will help towards the purchase of flowers and hanging baskets. Members of the SIB do a great job in keeping Shadwell looking attractive and tidy and spend many hours clearing rubbish and tidying up the streets as well as planting flowerbeds. Well done everyone.
