The 62nd Ellon Ladies’ Ball was held at the New Inn Hotel on Friday, December 7.

This year’s event had a fantastic total of 135 guests.

On the night a wonderful total of over £1,200 was raised through the raffle thanks to the generosity of the guests.

Speaking to the Times after the event, Claire Needler of the Ellon Ladies’ Ball committee said: “The New Inn provided a delicious meal, and Graham Geddes’ band were excellent as always.

“Last year we donated to Ellon Men’s Shed and Ellon Breastfeeding Support Group.

“The committee will meet early in the New Year to choose this year’s beneficiaries.

“We like to support small, local charities that work to support communities in Ellon.”

Claire also announced that the next Ellon Ladies’ Ball will take place on Friday, December 6, 2019.
