Not yet an annual event, but one which has been very much welcomed by the families within the Upperthong community, this alternative New Year’s Eve celebration is a hit with the kids! ‘Midnight’ is celebrated at 9pm – being midnight in Madagascar at 9pm GMT – allowing all ages to participate in an evening of fun, games, music and laughter. These evenings do take some time to plan and organise and volunteers needed to help run them safely and successfully. Committee members will do their best to make themselves available and numbers permitting, more of this style of event will be planned for the future.
