SAFARI SUPPER 2018
A perfect summer evening on Saturday 23 June saw fifty-one people walking around in Moggerhanger searching for their supper.
After a welcome drink in Tim and Carolyn’s garden, everyone set off to houses around the village where the hosts had prepared starters. An hour later, again people were traveling from one end of the village to the other to their main courses. A different host and a different group of people for all so it was a chance to catch up with old friends and maybe make some new ones.
Then it was back to St John’s Church for dessert and coffee. Finally, there were home-made liqueurs, courtesy of Tim & Carolyn, followed by a raffle and the Village Hall Summer 100+ Club Draw.
Ken Ebbage, Treasurer of the Friends, thanked everyone who had contributed in any way to the evening, including the hosts and cooks and everyone who bought a ticket to come. Elizabeth and Karen were each presented with a basket of flowers for helping with the desserts and washing up.
The evening raised a magnificent £809 for the Friends of St John’s Church a registered charity which raises funds for the maintenance of the church building and churchyard. Anyone who would like to contribute regularly to the work of the Friends (it can be for as little as £1 a month) is invited to contact Ken.
There is a big project on the horizon – to provide a toilet for the church – so much fund-raising to be done.
