The St George’s Night Dinner, held in the Village Hall on Saturday 23rd April, was a great success with 50 people enjoying a superb and extremely delicious dinner of Greenfield sausages, mash and peas followed by Monxton Apple & Blackberry Crumble with cream – all beautifully home-made by the wonderful organisers. All washed down with excellent Berry Bros wines and quality ales.
We had a challenging and thought-provoking quiz on all things England, Shakespeare and St George, which caused much chatter and debate throughout the evening.
There has been some lovely feedback saying how delicious the food was and what a good, fun night it was – and everyone’s expectations were exceeded.
The total profit from the evening was £465.60, which was split equally between the Walk The Walk breast cancer charity and the Renovation Fund for Monxton & Amport Village Hall (£232.80 for each charity).
The plan is to hold a similar event next year, so put Saturday 22nd April 2017 in your diaries for a bigger and better event!
