Christmas Lunch at the Social & Bowling Club: Thursday 18 December 2014
Thank you! Thanks to all for the generous support for our second Christmas Lunch! We had 65 guests, served by Village Team elves, and we sent over 15 meals to local houses.
The meal was cooked for us at no charge by Rik Jones, Head Chef at Devonshire Hall, University of Leeds, assisted by his partner Sarah Wilmot. The food was kindly supplied by Hebden and Poole veg suppliers and Sykes House Farm butchers, both based in Wetherby.
The wonderful Heptonstall School Choir entertained the guests with beautifully sung Christmas carols as well as more up to date songs.
Guests at the Heptonstall Village Team lunch were surprised and a little taken aback when they were served by witches, skeletons, Draculas and other spooky creatures.
There were over 20 guests at this fun event. Anyone is welcome to come and join in the fun….. You won’t be discriminated against…. even if you think you are under age! Honest!
These events are lively, intelligent fun and aim to get the generations to mix up a bit. We often get old friends up from Mytholm Court and Mytholm Meadows as well as Elphin Court.
Our next 2 are :
Wed 19th November and Wed 10th December
It is all too easy to get caught up in a fast paced hi tech life.
What a wonderful, easy going funny evening at the Heptonstall Sports and Social Club recently.
Laminated board, square cardboard horses, and a pack of extra large playing Race Night cards was all it took to get people of their seats and shouting for their particular nag to win!
The evening was only a fiver and included a pie and pea supper.
Funds were raised for much needed running repairs, and to convert one of the toilets for wheelchair access in time for the Heptonstall Village Team Christmas Lunch.
As a trainee chef, Iain worked under Raymond Blanc, who helped him hone his passion for blending taste, texture and flavours.
Once qualified Iain went on to work alongside Gordon Ramsey, who further helped him in developing his passion for food (along with a few lessons in advanced use of colourful language!).
It was with great pride when he agreed to come to the Heptonstall Sports and Social Club and belt out a stunning 5 course meal for 50 delighted guests.
Funds raised were to go towards dog charities, with Ian’s Charity receiving £160.00. PAWS received £250.00 and the Bowling Club took receipt of £400, which will be used towards converting one of the toilets for wheelchair users.
Iain and his beautiful Fiancé Sinead, have fallen in love with the people and the place, will be coming back for their honeymoon next April, and have promised to put on a big bash for us once a year from here on in!
A big big thank you, to all the wonderful volunteers who made the night go so well.
