Prestatyn Presbyterian Church Hotpot Supper

Last Friday the Rev Mike Smith and his congregation from the Presbyterian Church here in Prestatyn held their New Year Celebrations with a hotpot supper, we were invited along as guests- as the evenings proceeds were being donated to Andrews charity the M.N.D.A. The evening was organized by the Friday society-Our very own photographer Stuart Lewis was in charge of cooking the hotpot- Stuart now retired use to work in catering so was more than qualified for the job !
The trestle tables had been set up ready when we arrived and people were being seated-Everyone was very welcoming and friendly and made us feel very much at home , After all the introductions we took our seats and were given a quiz to do while we waited for our hotpot to be served !It was a great icebreaker and a lot of fun !
I just love all the Beryl woods china the tables were laid out with ! Very retro ! The hotpot was delicious -served steaming hot with lots of fresh bread rolls and lashings of butter !

Myself hubby Ned and brother in law Tim -tucking in to our hotpot !
After the hotpot- the pudding was served and what a selection to choose from ! All our family chose the bread and butter pudding -again with lashings of cream ! Pictured here are the lovely ladies who served the puddings [and washed up afterwards ] !!
A raffle was then held -followed by some Scottish dancing-which was great fun-hubby is still getting over the flu so Tim and I had a spin round the floor- though I must admit I loved sitting and watching all the kids having fun it was very entertaining just watching them !
At the end of the evening Ann and myself were presented with a cheque by committee member Roy Rendall for the sum of £300.00 !
Thank you to all the members of the Presbyterian Church for all your hard work which went into making the evening such a success-we really enjoyed our night and Andrew was delighted -Our fund raising thermometer is now well over the half way mark now thanks to you all !

Hi Janet,
How nice was that? Truly giving people there! It really looks like a fun evening, sorry Ned is a little puny, hope he's better soon.
Bread pudding, haven't had any in ages, I need to put that on my "to do" list!
Have a lovely rest of the day!
