This was a sell-out, one more table than last year and almost £4,000 raised for our next project. This year the tables were decorated not with rose petals but with clods of grass delivered from a member’s farm, placed in dishes, stuck with roses from our gardens; tea lights lit up the settings.
Margy Nixon and Pauline Messum are the inspiration and driving force behind this, our major fund raiser, with help from Gabi, Jane, Penny, Simon, Zita and many others. The story of the logistics in preparing a delightful meal for 110 people in various kitchens around the parish and beyond is worthy of a novella!
The outcome was a great success: good food, good company, entertainment by Michael Chance (local actor and singer), a raffle and a profit.
Any photographs of the event would be welcome.
