Paella and Christmas thanks


Last November the cooking team did a splendid job in cooking and serving paella at Louise Gaiger’s birthday party. As usual all profits went to charity and afterwards Louise commented:

What a wonderful evening we had. Everyone loved the paellas and the bountiful salads! It worked fantastically well and we would definitely do something similar in future, given the opportunity.

Christmas thanks

Throughout 2019 Jim, Charlotte and the rest of the team at The Crown did a great job keeping us Devizes Rotary members well fed and watered.

Above is a picture of Paula (centre) presenting a cheque to Charlotte (right) as a token of our gratitude.

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 atĀ TheĀ Springfields AcademyĀ 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 oneĀ 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!
