British Club Pub Night

Twink Gates, British Club Publicity

On Nov. 14, 21 members of the British Club gathered together for a wonderful potluck Pub Night at the home of new members Chris Haines and Judy Kendall. We even had our very own Pearly Queen, Ethel Willmot! Members brought a delicious selection of food, including sausage rolls, deviled eggs, shepherd’s pie, chicken pot pie, toad in the hole, a selection of finger sandwiches, a fresh vegetable platter and dip, shrimp with cocktail sauce, meatballs, antipasti plates, and three-bean dip. For dessert, there was a delicious trifle and a wonderful selection of cheesecakes.

As usual, a good time was had by all! Everyone thanked Chris and Judy for having this very enjoyable evening in their lovely home.

Eventually, after the COVID restrictions have eased more, the British Club will resume their game afternoons every second and fourth Friday of the month. They will have a social event in the bar area at the SaddleBrooke Clubhouse, which includes the following activities: canasta, Mexican Train, and maybe bridge from 1 p.m. until around 4 p.m. This is followed by a social hour and a bar meal.
