Happy Time at Pimms and Pate

What a superb lunchtime treat we had on Saturday 18th August.  Despite being a small village, when they do something in Upton they do it right!  Pimms and Pate was not to be missed.  60 people came along: folk from Crowmarsh, Cholsey, Harwell and the surrounding villages.  The organisers would like to apologise to a number of villagers who were disappointed not to be able to attend as all the tickets were sold out.   A choice of a dozen pates were on offer: all home-made, plus new potatoes, salad, pickles, etc. and as ever the sweets were to die for.  If you still had room, cheese and biscuits came next.  The weather brightened just in time for half of the diners to sit outside on the patio, the remainder were in the hall.  Very nice raffle prizes were also up to be won.

The event was presented in a very professional way.  Can I just suggest that when the next Pimms and Pate comes around you get your tickets early so as not to be disappointed.

A big thank you must go to Maggie and Celia for their hard work in organising it, plus the band of helpers and those who provided the food.   Well done and roll on the next one.

The profit made was £730 which will go towards St Mary’s kitchen and loo project.
