THE second annual black tie Ellenborough Spring Ball was held on Saturday, October 18 at the Ellenborough hall.

The idea for the ball was conceived by Long Flat P&C members Leanne Coombes and Vanessa Crowley with the view to hosting an old-time event 'like we had back in the day', complete with dances such as Pride of Erin, Gypsy Tap and barn dances as well as some modern music to accommodate all ages.

The event has proved to be very popular with all funds raised from ticket sales going back to the Long Flat Public School P&C.

The crowd was entertained this year by local band "Gotcha Covered ".

The event drew a crowd of locals as well as visitors from Wauchope, Wingham, Comboyne, Byabarra and Beechwood who came to dance the night away.

The best dressed male was awarded to Dean Broderick with the best dressed female award going to Larissa Hardcastle.

The Long Flat Public School P& C would like to thank everyone who supported the event and to all the local businesses who donated prizes for the raffle; Wauchope Pharmacy, Piper and Rush, C S Mechanical Repairs, Wauchope newsagency, Charlize Rose and Long Flat Prime Cuts hairdressing.

If you missed the ball this year, be sure to get tickets for next year's event that will be held around the middle of October. Check the community calendar for dates.
