Summer Outing

1 Comment
So Saturday evening the Make, Do and Maker’s headed here for our Summer outing.
Now unfortunately due to other commitments there were only 3 of us but hey we had a great time!!!
We arrived to find Union Jack bunting outside the pub & all the windows blacked out……entering it hit us how dark it was! (You have been warned!) Taking our seats we could see many people had made the effort to dress up & there wasn’t a light in sight….candles everywhere.
We received our ration books for the food….
The food was excellent & I’ve discovered I like Spam! The best bit had to be the desserts….spotted dick & custard, Victoria sponge or scones with jam & cream!
Helen looking very stern!
Now it’s very hard to take photo’s in the dark……we tried lots of time with or without the flash but the flash made us look like frightened bunny rabbits!
Mrs Lewis & her char lady!
Penny looking very much of the era.
We met a lovely men complete with his medals, he took a shine to Penny & ended up seeing more then he should!!! We 3 should not wear dresses!
As I said it was a great night….the music was fantastic & has certainly given me ideas for the Make, Do and Mend group…..but I think I’ll leave the bombs!
I really hope they do another, maybe next time the whole gang can come.
Our next meeting will be Tuesday 7th September……more info to come next week.
Don’t forget to sign up for the new newsletter by emailing me you email address
In the meantime…..
Please note that from September 7th the entrance fee will now be £3.
Apologies for this but VAT has now been added to the room hire.
