BY GEORGE IT WAS A GOOD EVENING!


The Oak Apple Club celebrated St George’s Day at the village hall with a tasty supper and an evening of conviviality.  Welcomed among the english guests were ‘foreigners’ from Scotland, Ireland, Wales, Canada and New Zealand.  


We were all treated to some lovely local pork, a challenging quiz (many of us failing miserably and revealing a general lack of knowledge of the geography and history of England!), some typically English humour and a number of rousing patriotic songs, courtesy of Sophie on the keyboard.  The hall and tables were decorated with flags of St George, and even the beautiful table decorations were red and white.  At one point as the sun set, the proceedings were flash-lit by a fairly untypical (for April) summer storm.  


A fine community spirit manifested itself throughout the evening, especially when help was needed to serve up and to clear away.  Thanks go to Ruth and all the too many to mention who made the evening possible.
