It's all go around here!

Writing about web page

Ok, so the article is exaggerating slightly, but 1 whole block was evacuated, there were 2 fire engines, 1 ambulance and 1 police car.

But, all in all, at 11pm, everyone had returned to their flats, apart from the people in the involved flat and they were rehoused in a nearby flat. Today, there are lots of people here repairing the damaging and replacing windows etc.

Bonnett Catering Corps.

For those of you who haven't heard of the Bonnett Catering Corps., it is a small family run, non-profit organisation that cooks lunch in Knighton Parish Centre for between 60–80 people every so often.

To mark the departure of the curate and for the AGM, Dad, Mum and I have just prepared, bought, cooked, served and cleared chicken caserole and bread and butter pudding for 70 people. Needless to say, I am now quite tired!!

The three of us make a good unit really – Dad is the brains behind the operation and comes up with the menus and the portion sizes and hence the shopping list. Mum and I are the do-ers. We go shopping for 14 pints of milk, 15kg carrots…. and do all the preparation. On the day, Dad does the cooking while Mum serves and I wash up. Just for people who don't do washing up very often, plates, cutlery, serving dishes and saucepans for 70 people, takes 1 person 2 hours to wash, and a further hour to dry and put away!!!

So, if ever you fancy having private caters in for an event you are holding, look no further!!!
