Annual Buffet Supper

Wednesday 13th February

53 members and guests enjoyed this year's supper, which followed the traditional "bring & share" format.

Social Secretary Liz Hewitt had orchestrated a wide variety of tasty dishes and accompaniments for the main course, followed by a rich selection of mouth-watering desserts.

Pauline Williams won the horticulturally themed picture quiz (well, if you can identify a cucumber straightener, you deserve to). The general knowledge table quiz had everyone delving deep into their memory & puzzling over the cryptic questions.

All in all, a very enjoyable evening spent in good company.


 it should be 13th, Wednesday as usual.
