Pop-up1 copyCongratulations and thanks to Lucy Cholwill who cooked up a storm for us at the Sheepwash Pop-up restaurant on Saturday 29th June 2013. Together with Marg Atkin, Scott Cholwill, Sophie Leigh and our very own Gemma Vincent, helping out in the kitchen and waiting on tables, they made a cracking team.

I also want to say a big thank you to everyone else who kindly helped with the organisation, set up and clearing up afterwards – Anne & Martin Gray, Angela Jones, Alison Ansell, Bee Draper, Chris Vincent, Gary Fisher, Jo Driver, Mike Ritson and, of course, Simon. It was very much appreciated!

As far as costs go, I am pleased to report we more or less broke even on the night. But this includes lots of extra wine glasses, a dozen dishwashable bread baskets and the candle-holders. I hope they’ll all get lots of use in the future! There was a small profit of £15 which I have added to the hall rental.

There is one more thank you to say – everyone who came along on the night and made it such a fun and fabulous evening!
