Paella Party for Imagine Cruising

On Saturday 11th August we held a Paella Party for some employees of Imagine Cruising plus their family and friends.

The party was one of the two which were won in an auction held at The Springfields Academy where all proceeds were donated to the school.

All was going well in preparation for the event when we met up at Colin’s lockup in Bromham to load up the cars. However things became somewhat fraught when we realised that the address we’d been given was not recognised by our satnav devices as the house was a new one at the Tadpole Garden Village near Swindon.

This was further complicated by the fact that we didn’t have a telephone number for the contact person!

Nevertheless, we did manage to get there in the end (although not before some references to “it’s a bit like being part of Dad’s Army!” had been made) and, under the expert guidance of head chef Colin, we were again able to put on a great meal which was very much appreciated by all involved.

Thanks to the Imagine Cruising folks for their hospitality, and also to my granddaughter Molly for keeping us older blokes in order!

 

Springfields Academy Christmas Fair 2017

Last Thursday evening Springfields Academy opened their doors to parents and the public for their annual Christmas fair. Devizes Rotary took over the refectory to cook hot dogs and burgers plus both alcoholic and non-alcoholic Mold Wine, and the Conservatory to run the Rotathalon Games.

Although it was distinctly chilly outside, the atmosphere inside was lovely and warm and a good time was had by all. All profits from the Rotary food sales and donations were added to the profits made by the other stalls, and the total of over £800 will go to supporting pupils with educational  trips and resources to enrich their learning.
