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.

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.
