Back to boy bands and bandanas at village nursery’s fund-raising Nineties night

ABOUT 70 people attended a Nineties night in Nettlebed to raise money for the village nursery.

ABOUT 70 people attended a Nineties night in Nettlebed to raise money for the village nursery.

The committee that runs Happy Days Pre-School organised the event at Nettlebed Village Club.

Guests dressed as iconic Nineties characters such as Guns N’ Roses singer Axl Rose and were encouraged to buy glowsticks and lollipops.

Committee secretary Katie Sheehan said: “We all love the Nineties, especially the music, so we thought it would be a fun evening. It reminded us all of being young.

“We didn’t have a huge amount of time to plan it but we had a lot of support from friends and people in the village, which was good.” DJ Gary Boys, 45, of River Terrace, Henley, provided his services free of charge and Stovell’s Fish Suppers supplied food from their van outside.



Mr Boys said: “When they asked if I would do it I said ‘yeah’, in a heartbeat. It’s a good cause and it’s helping out the community.

“I love entertaining people, I love seeing people smile and I love taking people back in time.”

The evening raised £360 and Mrs Sheehan said: “We’re already thinking we might want to do another one in the summer and have more people.”

The pre-school, which is based at Nettlebed Community School, caters for 24 children and is a registered charity run by parents.
