This was the best Hog Roast ever, with sales of 123 tickets. Once again we were blessed with amazing weather and some great entertainment.

First Get-Baking Event 2012

We were blessed by glorious weather for the first Get Baking event on Sunday afternoon, May 13th 2012. We estimated that about 120 adults and children came, with no less than 50 home-made cakes and delights. A special thanks goes to all 15 children that entered the Junior MAster Baker Competition – the standard of entries was exceptional!

Autumn Hog Roast 2011

Last year’s Autumn Hog Roast at the Exeter Cricket Pavilion was another great sell-out success, with nearly 100 attending.

All that came were thrilled and entertained by the amazing juggling skills of Ben Cornish and the brilliant music of, local band, Spin 2.  Thanks to many of the residents for making some scrumptious puddings and, again, our thanks to Astridges catering of Exeter for yet another brilliant Devon Hog Roast!

We are looking forward to the next one but in the meanwhile giving thought to a number of other social events during the year.
