The Ellon Ladies’ Ball was held at the New Inn Hotel on Friday, December 1.

This was the 61st year of the popular annual event that was well attended by local ladies.

Claire Needler of the Ellon Ladies’ Ball committee said: “We raised more than £1,000 in the raffle on the night, and plan to make donations to local charities in the near future.”

She added: “Graham Geddes got us all dancing, and the New Inn’s food was excellent as always.”
