Hog Roast Social evening organised by Folkestone Rotary Club

Fri, Oct 8th 2021 at 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm

Lympne Castle is the venue and it is an opportunity for Fellowship with the three other local Rotary clubs

Dear Gary, Liz and Barbara

We had a date booked for our Quadrangular weekend in early October and of course, it was all cancelled due to Covid, however, we decided to keep the Hog Roast booked at Lympne Castle so that we could have a social evening. The venue can take up to 100 guests and we wondered whether your clubs would like to join us, especially as we have not socialised for quite some time. Its a big space and there is always the option of outside. It’s not a sit down meal but an opportunity to wander around, eat the hog (not me as a veggie but I’m assuming a veggie option) and just generally enjoy some extremely missed fellowship with other Rotarians and partners.

Would your clubs like to use 20 places each? It’s not a fundraiser, so the cost is £20 per person for the meal and the venue. I’m hoping we can add to the evening by booking some entertainment of some sort, and I’m hoping that Shepway Brass might come up trumps as we bought their instruments a few years ago. In the middle of Lockdown we had to make a decision and I’m really glad we did as it’s time we remembered what Rotary Fellowship is all about.
Andrew Beggs is organising the bookings for the Hog Roast on Friday October 8th at Lympne Castle. He can be contacted on Andrew.beggs@folkestonerotary.org or on 07790031199.

Terry Cooke-Davies will be collecting the money, (£20 per person) but first thing is to book a place.

I’m hoping that we will all enjoy a social evening in beautiful surroundings, without it being a fundraiser and we can remember what the fellowship bit of Rotary is all about.
