July BBQ and Historic Walk Update

Itinerary – Meet at Fisherman’s Cottage at 16.00 pm if you wish to have a guided tour of Ayton Castle. Only recently have guided tours become available for the general public. I am told by John Edwards that, strictly speaking, it is a fortified Manor House which was built in the turbulent 14th Century. The trip may take up to an hour AND IS VOLUNTARY of course.

17.00hrs – Repair to Fisherman’s Cottage where we will start the evening with a complimentary glass of bubbly and then enjoy a traditional Greek starter consisting of cold meze and finishing with hot meze such as grilled lamb meatballs.

18.00hrs – We help ourselves to spit-roasted marinated lamb and chicken served with Greek Village Salad and buttered Jersey potatoes.

19.00hrs – Dessert course consisting of Greek-style yoghurt served with sweet white grapes and honey (there will also be some Tiramisu for anyone who doesn’t like yoghurt).

DRINKS – There will be a self-service bar with drinks at supermarket prices, typically £5-6 bottle for wine and £1 for beer and lager. Or please feel free to bring your own liquor if you wish – we have plenty of glasses!

WEATHER – If inclement then the event will be held in a marquee and will not be cancelled unless very strong winds occur which is unlikely.

COST – To include the bubbly and a per capita contribution to the Friends of  Ayton Castle – £15 per head to be paid on the night.

RSVP – This is an event for members, partners and guests.  If you wish to attend then please Tom know by email no later than 12.00hrs on Monday 10 July.

(REMINDER – this is an OPT IN event so you have to book if you wish to attend)
Lots of people have already booked  but, unfortunately Tom’s iPad has dumped the details so please book again – sorry !
