After the brilliant weather on Saturday it was slightly disappointing to have a cool wind and cloud on Sunday. However that did not dampen peoples spirits in the least.
Nearly seventy people attended and were welcomed with a glass of Prosecco, followed by the opportunity to taste 32 different wines. Some were really good but there was an absolutely terrible South African wine that we poured away! Old and new world were represented with some old clarets, and wines from the USA to New Zealand. Clive and Sarah entertained us with singing to sound tracks from scores such as Phantom.
For supper Ruth, Judith, and Judy cooked all the casseroles to perfection and Ruth Judith, Judy, Richard, Evelyn and Pat all created beautiful desserts.
Thanks to Janet for organizing the raffle and for all the helpers setting up and taking down.
Thanks to everyone who supported the event which raised (including the raffle) £851.00 for the Baspani water project in Nepal. Fantastic work everybody!
