Zoom Laying Up Supper 2020

Saturday 14th November 2020

Last evening the 2020 Laying-Up Supper took place via Zoom with 21 households taking part.  It was an amazing evening created by Cally Smith and produced and directed by Jo Edye.  Dividing us into Zoom ‘Rooms’ or tables as Cally insisted they be called worked incredibly well.  Cally devised a varied menu for us to choose from, two quizzes, a review of the year (thanks to Sue Hines for her Transom Quiz and selection of photographs).  
 
Trophies were awarded for the five races that we managed to run this year, Covid was not the only hurdle we had to overcome, the weather also conspired against us at every opportunity.
