Alban Supper 2008


All Saints Church, Leighton Buzzard Thursday June 26th 7:30pm for 7:45pm

All Saints Church, Leight Buzzard

We celebrated our Alban Supper on the 26th June at All Saints Church, Leighton Buzzard. It was a damp evening outside but inside the company was friendly and the food was excellent. We got off to a later start than planned because of bad traffic, but we settled down to delicious Pear and Stilton Salad, or a Medallion of Pate pressed into a pepper ring, or slides of melon.

it was nice to see Anne and Peter there. Lindsay our hostess for the evening kept us well supplied with drink.

The main course of Salmon or Gammon was helped along with a variety of salads.

One of the puddings was a surprise. Cheese cake became blueberry and Rocotta cheese - Cake which was delicious.

I sign of an excellent meal was Nonita asking after the recipes for several of the dishes.

We had a good time. It was so good to meet up with everyone and exchange news and to talk about all things not related to the church. Frank brought around the group photograph taken at the Conference. Mark seemed to be easy to pick out.

I sat near Peter and arranged with him for Marks Work Experience in the Abbey. Whilst Mark is at the Abbey, Peter will be taking a service. We arranged for Mark to carry the Virge for him.

We now have to plan for the Summer event.
