I think we can safely say the Keith and Bev at the Butchers did us proud – what a Christmas and New Year.
Santa started the celebrations with a last minute drop into the Butchers to check out on the children and make sure he had got their details for Christmas day.
Arriving in the dark on his pony pulled sleigh certainly got the children excited as did the gifts he brought with him.
Then came New Year’s eve. Keith was heard to say to visitors “we are having a party with a buffet”. The Butchers buffets are famous, this time with a menu including Turkey + Ham pie, Steak pie, venison + dumplings, chicken curry and lasagne on an eat as much as you like basis. Then there was the seemingly never ending supply of vodka jellies and shots.
Many of the locals including the staff took up the fancy dress challenge with the following pictures hopefully giving the flavour of what was a brilliant night.
Our thanks must go to the staff at the Butchers for not just all their work over the Christmas and New Year holidays but for everything throughout 2012.
We have a community pub which is second to none.
And finally the real chef ! with those vodka jellies.
