Christmas Pies and Punch

The Pies and Punch evening held in Harringworth Village Hall on Saturday 9th December was a great success. 54 tickets were sold to this event which gave Harringworth Villagers a great start to Christmas. It was nice to have some young families and also some newcomers to the village join in the fun.

The Hall was decorated with twinkling fairy lights, hanging baubles and a brightly lit Christmas tree.  The evening commenced with a free glass of hot Punch with Christmas music playing in the background. There was time to stand and chat and get to know some new faces as well as catching up with friends and neighbours.  A sumptuous buffet supper included all sorts of pies and quiches, sausages, cold meats, fine cheeses, pickles, baguettes, biscuits and salads, rounded off with hot mince pies !

Although it was all excellent value at £6 a head including the glass of hot Punch, a superb profit of £337.87 in total was made. This sum has started the fund raising for the planned Harringworth Flower Festival which is to take place in June 2018, to be coordinated by Sue Reading.

Thank you to all who came and supported the event from the organisers –  Maggie Hill, Jennie Tillyer, Sue Reading, Boey Ling and Jenny Craven. A big thank you to Simon McLean and Bill Waterman who organised and ran the bar and to the villagers who donated raffle prizes, decorated the hall before hand and washed up and cleared up at the end of the evening. It was a great team effort and a credit to the village !
