Friends of St Mary’s Wine Tasting – Fri 12th July in the Church Hall at 7.30pm for a 7.45pm start.
Jul 12 @ 7:30 pm

As so many people said how much they enjoyed the conviviality of our festive dinner, and the wine tasting held last summer, we are planning a further wine tasting evening to follow up on the positive comments we have had. We shall taste 8 different wines, with some nibbles. As before, Aileen Barry shall introduce the wines, including the grape varieties and how the wines are made – some you may know, some may be new, but all delicious.

We’ll sit on round tables of 8, so come either on your own, or with a friend, or book a table for up to 8. Payment, £12 per person, can be made by bank transfer (sort code 30 94 30, account number 02312070), or by cheque or cash on the night, but please reserve your places by emailing Aileen at or by a note to her at 11 Church Street SG7 5AE
