Ping Pong Success

On Saturday 23rd November, kids of all ages (and some had a fair mileage) came to play, eat, drink and enjoy at the village hall’s first Ping Pong, Pizza and Prosecco night. The organisers weren’t sure what would happen but in the event it was a great turnout with tots to grandparents and all ages between enjoying the play and Alex and the team’s excellent pizzas. As it happened they made a fair sum of money for the new village playground as well.

A big thanks to everyone concerned. A great idea!

Sri Lankan Curry Evening

On October 5th , around 120 friends from the village and beyond came together in the Community Centre to enjoy an evening of wonderful authentic Sri Lankan dishes, including a variety of curries – chicken, cashew nut, bean, cabbage, fried potato, chick pea, aubergine as well as daal, raita, mango chutney and chilli coconut sambal and not to forget the pudding of fresh fruit salad – a feast by anyone’s standard!

We are very grateful to the group of volunteers who came to help to prepare the food for the evening but our main thanks must go to Kumari, Shriani, Sidney and Ailsa for cooking the various tasty dishes. The event could not have happened without these wonderful people.

And the evening would not have been complete without the usual raffle and (in)famous quiz and auction! Thanks to Ordrith and team for selling raffle tickets, Robert for preparing and organising the quiz and everyone for participating in the auction and especially to Gareth for showing us all how it should be done!!
