February's Monthly Meeting

The speaker today was Richard Burton on 'Life at Barrington Hall' It was made more interesting as he was the son of the head gardener living in a cottage on the estate. He had slides to illustrate the talk.

We also had a birthday celebration for Nancie who will be 94 on Friday! There were a lot of delicious cakes..

We had another new member plus 2 visitors and we were almost a full house!

A new experience

This month we decided to try No.5 North Street for our monthly lunch. We were enchanted with it all. After we had ordered little tasty bits were served to keep us interested. Marmite and cheddar on a interesting base, a little pot of soup, a little mackerel hors d'oeuvre  and different breads.

The main course arrived looking like art on a plate! There were 2 choices and most of us opted for the cod, superbly cooked..well the chef does have a Michelin Star..with a sample of several veggies and well seasoned spaghetti.
The desserts were also different with wonderful ice creams.

We were well looked after and made very welcome, all in all a great experience and a new restaurant for our list!
