Quarley Harvest Supper 2005 - Pictures
(Extract from the "Parish
News", with many thanks to Sir George Young, MP)
Desmond Graves was behind the bar, with one of his totemic bow-ties, with Tess and Judy irresistible with the raffle tickets. Chris Pettet led us in a hymn, and took a number of photos.
The village hall was
packed, and there was some superb home cooking in copious quantities, with
puddings to die for.
The evening was presided
over by Tony Ferguson with great bonhomie, who auctioned enough garden produce
to stock Waitrose for a week. I invested in a small fig tree, which will be a
happy memento of the evening (as long as I keep it out of the draught.). My
modest role was to draw the raf;fle - more arduous than it sounds as so many
people generously gave prizes.
The evening struck me as
village life at its best - environmentally pure with home-grown, home-cooked
produce; socially inclusive with everyone there; raising funds for a worthwhile
cause - the church (which brought the village together) - and a great
atmosphere. Far better than being stuck in front of the TV with a microwaved
Indian meal on my knees. - George Young
