Pupils from The Beehive also voted on their entertainment for the evening, with performances from local singers and a disco provided by Ashley Hooper Parties.

Julia Forrest-Wilson, adult services operations manager, commented, “The past year at The Beehive has seen a lot of change, my team have been instrumental in making everything run smoothly for the people we support, and so rounding it off with something like this has been really great.”
