Christmas Drinks 2017



About 35 or so different allotment holders and other guests attended at one time or another throughout the 2 hours. Not a bad turnout considering the biting wind and extremely wet weather – even the Carol Singers were rained off. But lots of lovely savoury food was donated and consumed with not a mince pie in sight. Drink donations consisted of 2 bottles Home Made Apple Juice, 3 bottles of commercial mulled wine and 10 bottles of assorted red wine.

Between us Wendy and I mulled a total of 16 bottles of wine which were all consumed. So, after using 5 bottles from the office store and purchasing 8 bottles with the Society donation of £25 and Angela’s £5 donation, we put 10 bottles back into the office store for use at a future event. Cheers!

Cynthia Fulks, A32
Thanks to Cynthia for this report about the seasonal miracle of turning wine into more wine. The mulling
recipe seems just right and the mulling elves did a fine job. The drinkers played their part as expected. The weather just tested our spirit and we passed with flying colours!

Thanks to everyone more making it such an enjoyable time.
John Eaton, Chairman
