In what has become a much sought-after ticket, the annual pre-Christmas tasting, well the second one anyway, was enjoyed by a Village Hall bursting with bonhomie, decibels and bodies. Such is the well-earned reputation of our tastings, the tickets flew off the shelf, selling in record time.
Our much-rehearsed duo, Carole and Ron, led the expectant throng through the evening’s programme of tasty delights and tipples. After a welcoming glass of Prosecco, the hampers of local foods, boosted by Phil’s goat curry and naan bread and Roy’s hot chicken, ham and leek pie, were tastefully teamed up with Ron’s carefully selected wines and beers: 2 whites, 2 reds and 2 beers in all.
With Christmas in mind, this was followed by 3 whiskies and
3 shots, adding up to a total of 12 different tastings, and countless units. A “dry’ run for Christmas it certainly wasn’t. Well done to all you doughty tipplers! Your constitutions never cease to amaze us.
Special thanks to the Shop team for putting everything together, to Julia Harding for working miracles in the kitchen, and the ‘Terrific Teens’ for looking after everyone and ensuring the smooth delivery of all the food and drinks.
