2014-10-07 Harvest Supper 2014

The Allotment Association’s annual harvest supper is here again, and it’s time to book your place(s).

This year’s event is on Saturday 8 November at 6.30 for 7pm at the St Margaret’s Institute in Polstead Road.

The format is similar to that of previous years; everyone brings a main course and/or a dessert to share with others – hot or cold – and you bring your own drinks, also to share. There will be a welcome drink on arrival.

The evening’s entertainment is up to you. The winners of the annual photographic exhibition will be announced (and all entries shown) and, if desired, there will be an allotment quiz, fruit and vegetable charades or just polite conversation.

To book your place(s), which costs £5 a head, please e-mail Stuart Skyte at skytes@tiscali.co.uk, or call on 01865 559618, stating whether you will bring a main course or a dessert (or both).
