Basingstoke Jan 31st.

January 31, 2013

Today Elaine & I went to the College of Technology in Basingstoke for a lunch to support the Mayor of Basingstoke & Deane’s charity appeal.

On arrival we were greeted by the sight of the College being evacuated! This was an excellent way to start our visit, but it turned out that someone had pushed the wrong button trying to get out of a closed door.

Once in the restaurant, we saw a beautifully carved bird on the reception desk. This was an example of carving in soap!

This was also a chance for the catering students of the College to hone their skills in preparing, cooking and serving what was a very nice meal.

Several of the Mayor’s Charities were represented at the lunch, and the bird was auctioned to one of their members for £35!
