Trafalgar Night 2013 – private party at Trinity parish rooms

Trafalgar

The restoration programme for the Trinity parish rooms just managed to complete in time for its first private booking. Pip and David Atkinson repeated their annual Trafalgar Dinner to commemorate a notable naval victory, salute the memory of Admiral Nelson and continue a well-known naval tradition of giving a sumptuous dinner to invited guests.

The evening progressed with guest speaker Susie a former WREN sharing some of her memories of the service, David himself reminding us all of the personal qualities and biography of Admiral Nelson, and Canon Blair rose to share some memories of his service with the Royal Engineers and later as an army chaplain.

The typically British menu consisted of  a selection of homemade pâte with freshly baked breads, followed by homemade steak and ale pie served with mushy peas and mashed potato. Homemade trifle followed by Madeira wine and coffee completed the fare.

A thoroughly enjoyable evening all round, and money raised will be donated to church funds and a local charity.
