Annual Buffet Supper   Wednesday 12th February

Some 40 members and guests got together in the Memorial Hall for our annual supper. Four of the lady members of the Committee had cooked a range of very tasty casseroles that were served piping hot, complemented by cold dishes, salads and sides contributed by the other participants, as were the wide choice of mouth-watering desserts.
All was brilliantly organised by Social Secretary Liz Hewitt.
The quizzes had us all mulling over the answers, adding to the convivial atmosphere (as did the complimentary glass of wine).
A very enjoyable evening.

General Manager, Peter Stanley, described the Trust’s work helping those with learning disabilities and/or autism to reach their potential and live more independently.
Mike and Jacki’s very large garden with its immaculate lawns, well planted and maintained borders and areas of vegetable and fruit production is a great contrast to the unkempt jungle that greeted them when they moved in – a tribute to Mike’s indefatigable work & vision.
Sarah Newman’s talk and demonstration on flower arranging was much appreciated by an attentive audience, ranging from novices to experienced flower arrangers.
