The Friends

Langrish and Ramsdean Friends

Village walk

On Saturday 22nd May the heavy rain and high winds abated and sixteen of us enjoyed a village walk followed by afternoon tea in calm weather. The sun stayed out for most of the afternoon and the clouds and wind stayed away until tea, cakes and scones had been consumed. As useful as Zoom has been to keep in touch, meeting people face to face contact is so much more fulfilling.

Next Friends event

Our next event will be the annual village lunch which this year will be held on September 12th in conjunction with the celebration of the 150th anniversary of the consecration of Langrish Church

The lunch will be held on the lovely, newly created grass area below the Church. A hog roast is booked for the event there will, of course, be a vegetarian alternative, a selection of salads and dessert. There will be a cash bar and, I believe, a jazz band. Further details will be circulated closer to the date.

Future events

We plan to resume monthly meetings at Langrish House in October, kicking off with a Wine and Cheese tasting led by Sara Bangert who provided us with a wonderful selection of wines and cheeses at our meeting in January 2020.

Further meetings are planned for November and December. November will be a talk on the Iron Age, in preparation for which Dave, Karen and I are going on a course on Iron Age cookery so that we can provide you with food appropriate for the occasion! And of course December’s meeting is our Christmas meal with no speaker; just lots of conversation.
