HILTON FEAST WEEK.
The Feast Week Burns Night on 25 th January was a great success with an excellent turn out, and plenty of food for everyone with the traditional Haggis ! Our toastmaster Ronnie arrived in his kilt and Scottish attire , he then played the bagpipes to march in the Haggis before addressing it with some very amusing verse. The evening was great fun with a disco later on, after a traditional game of rolling the £1 coin towards the bottle of best whisky, the winner being the nearest! We had some serious contenders, some even laying on the floor to line up the coin!
So many thanks to everyone for making it such a success and supporting Feast Week, we had some great feedback so hope to do this event again in the future. Thank-you so much to the F.W. committee, for all their hard work in the kitchen, to produce such a wonderful dinner.
Our next Quiz night will be on 22 nd FEBRUARY2014 from 7 pm for 7.30pm start in the village hall. Please contact Gill Gill by phone or email below to book your tables of 8, to ensure fair competition! The ticket price is £10 per person, which can be paid to Gill by cash or cheque payable to Hilton Feast Week, which is superb value for a lovely chilli and rice plus a vegetarian option, with great entertainment from your quiz masters Brian and Nina.
