18th Mar: Coffee Morning

Sincere thanks to all our bakers who made some fanastic cakes for our Comic Relief coffee morning. And also to those who attended. During the proceedings, there was a small presentation to the Weekday Warriors. The event was run by Micky, Richard and students from our school. We raised £234 for Comic Relief 2022.

29th Mar: Cheese & Wine

Mike was back for a slightly delayed evening of Cheese and Wine. He had a very good excuse: it was his silver wedding anniversary. There was another great selection of cheese available to choose from including a rare Red Windsor cheese which was absolutely die for. It is firm and moist cheddar laced with boh port and brandy made by the Long Clawson Dairy in the Vale of Belvoir. There was also an excellent Brie that was deliciously runny.
