2007 Harvest Supper
by michael - 16:45 on 07 October 2007
You won't find a more worthwhile cause than the East Anglian Air Ambulance. I recall not too long ago a very nasty accident at the junction of the Carbrook Road with the Watton/Hingham Road and in very quick time the Air Ambulance was there.
So, the proceeds of the Harvest Supper this year went to this most worthy cause.
A number of people put in a lot of effort to make this work but it still wouldn't have been a success without the generosity of the patrons paying for their tickets.
All in all it was a good evening's entertainment - have a look........
For his information, I used to visit the pub for meals and the very occasional drink but only visited the Red Lion on two occasions since the last tenants took over. We found the standard of food to be poor and we were not prepared to spend our hard earned cash on second rate food. We are not regular pub drinking folk either and I suspect that many of the people at the Harvest event are also not with the exception of maybe one or two. I would be very sorry to see the Red Lion close but if an efficiently run and smart operation were in place it would probably be supported better.
As a small footnote, I wonder how often he supports the well advertised events in the village and at the Village Hall such as the inter-village quizzes, etc. I can appreciate and respect that they may not be “his scene” but maybe drinking down the pub is not “their scene” for many of the people you saw in the excellent video on the web site. We all have different priorities I guess.
