IT may still be February but people are being encouraged to get into the summer spirit for an indoor beach party.
The Hart Village Hall Association is urging residents to don their sunglasses and leave behind the winter blues.
They have organised their own party, complete with a surf simulator and a mix of summer tunes, which will take place at the Hart Village hall.
Emma Clarke, a member of the Hart Village Hall Association who has helped to organise the party, said: “We were talking about events which we thought would prove popular and we thought this would be a bit of fun for everyone.
“Events like this are all about community spirit and people can come along and enjoy what will hopefully be a fantastic night.”
Emma, 37, lives in Hart Village with her husband, Alexander, 41, and children, Holly, nine and six-year old Ben.
She added: “We have said to people they can come along in fancy dress, but obviously that doesn’t mean people have to wear their swimming bathers or shorts.
“Just put on a pair of shades.
“There will be a licensed bar on the night and the drinks will be relatively cheap.”
Emma said the group has hosted events at the village hall in the past.
Last year they organised a charity event raising money for Help for Heroes where they raised an impressive £600.
She said: “In previous events the take up has been very good so hopefully we will get a similar response with this.”
The party will take place on Saturday, March 5, from 7.30pm.
Tickets, priced at £7 are available by calling Emma on (01429) 854280.
Emma also urged people who might be interested in joining the association to attend their AGM, which is taking place at the village hall on Wednesday, March 9 at 7.30pm.
She added: “Members don’t have to necessarily attend every meeting and come up with plans every week.
“But it would be nice to hear some different ideas.”
