Supper: Last Saturday’s harvest supper was a really delightful evening. The food was really delicious, thanks to the ladies in the kitchen, Lyn Ryan & Vicky Patterson, with plenty of helpers, lovely home made salads & meat & fish with hot new potatoes. Lovely crumbly apple pies, coffee & mints. The beautiful unaccompanied young singer gave us some lovely songs and the whole thing ended with the guests joining in.
