On July 29th, a Village Wine Tasting event was held. Here is an update of the evening and some photos.

We are pleased that it turned out as planned and everyone enjoyed themselves. A fun and casual way to catch up whilst slurping on the different wines at their disposal. They had to guess the wines, what was on the “Nose” or what flavours they could distinguish on the palate. There were wines from both the Old World and New World and we even managed to taste a British Sparkling Wine! We were a bit over enthusiastic as there were perhaps too many tasters – 9 different wines. Next time rest assured that there will be less.  We were also happy that everyone left with a “spring in their step” and luckily found their way back home.

The event was organised as a Social Event and not as a fundraiser. We had decided that should any monies be left over these would be donated to the charity of choice. We managed to accommodate a few extra people late in the day and those who sadly had to cancel at the ‘eleventh hour’ donated their ticket money. The Village Hall Committee have also donated the Hall hire. As luck would have it we had generated enough money to donate. The two nominated charities turned out to be evenly supported and therefore the money has been equally split between the two – Prostate Cancer UK and Rainbows Hospice for Children and Young People.

The amount generated after expenditure was    £111.50.   We would like to say a huge THANK YOU! TO EVERYONE.

There is a general consensus to hold another wine evening perhaps during the winter months… I hope you are not actually suggesting that a “Ridlington Wine Club” is set up? 🤣

Please feel free to share your ideas with us. It was a great opportunity for the village to get together and an opportunity to welcome new residents.

So once again, Thank You, and we look forward to hearing from you.
