A moving meal

Progressing around the village
Saturday 17 July was the time for the annual Women’s Institute’s Progressive supper around Old Buckenham. Some of the locations were nearer to each other than usual but there was still some walking to do between courses.
Sherry and nibbles were served in one house in Mill Road where everyone gathered together before going off for their starters of pate or melon elsewhere in Mill Road. The main course had been prepared at a house in Attleborough Road so this was a chance to have a gentle walk around the village Green and to work up an appetite. This year the meal had a French theme with a delightful coq au vin being served on tables decorated in the red, white and blue of the French tricolour. Then a stroll back in the evening sunshine for a glorious array of sweets, The WI ladies do make wonderful puddings and there is usually the chance to try more than one if you still have room.
Everyone sat around on what turned out to be a calm and warm evening, talking and sipping their coffees and teas until darkness began to fall and it was time to go home.
