Thank you to all those of you who “popped in” last week (and for all the good wishes from those who couldn’t make it) to help celebrate our 5 year gig, quaff a few local bubbles and enjoy nibbles, bon viverary, wit and company. Who knows where another 5 will land us
Also last week saw the 8th staging of the fat boys invitational football tournament, an event started as a modest 4 team hour of friendly fun has become a 12 team, 100 plus player, afternoon of competitive but enjoyable sport. Suffice to say the Fat Boys did not disgrace themselves and lived up to their favourites billiung, whilst The Carrotiers proved that throwing an unproven team together on the day will not always garner the best results. Full report, pictures and tables coming soon @ Fat Boys Invitational 2017
Friday 2 June – Local Wine Tasting – Welcome to a trip into local wine making folklore.
