Mulled Wine & Mince Pies Night with lighting of the village Christmas tree and carols.
Saturday, 11th December, 6pm.
Come along and enjoy a pre-Christmas village get-together with a glass or two of mulled wine, nibbles and mince pies. The big switch on will take place at around 6.30pm followed by a few carols to get us in the Christmas spirit (if the mulled wine hasn’t already done that!).
people crowded in to St Leonard’s, last Friday (21st) to celebrate
Christmas through the traditional service of Lessons and much-loved Carols. Throughout the service the church was lit solely
by candles which added to the warm and welcoming atmosphere.
Courgette soup is a revelation. It’s one of those magical recipes that tastes so much better than you’d ever expect it to, considering how simple it is to make. The flavour is creamy and savoury, with a sweet and suble nutty hint. It not only makes surprisingly good soup, it also makes a lovely pasta sauce, and it freezes well too.
Castle Howard is one of the best and most famous stately homes in England. With it’s inspiring history, and wonderful architecture, it has often been used as a film set for dramas and historical documentaries. However for those of us who want to walk around the grounds, and only catch glimpses of the great house, it is just as enjoyable.
