    Valentine’s Ball & Banquet

    We were pleased to help out again at this year’s Valentine’s Ball & Banquet at the Institute. This raises funds for the Carnival Committee, helping to make sure both the Carnival and Tar Barrels can continue to run.

    Our starter was ham hock terrine with homemade piccalilli, homemade bread roll and thyme butter, which went down really well.

    The team from Rusty Pig provided a main course of mutton tangine, as well as the dessert, Rocky Road brownie with rose crème fraiche. Chef Robin was away skiing (slacker) so Craig Samson and Joe Draper stepped in to help.

    Anyone who was there will know that during the auction, a meal at Rusty Pig for 12 was auctioned off for an amazing £1,000! Well watch this space, next year we’ll include a dinner at the Volley for an auction prize!

    Well done to everyone involved, we look forward to hearing news of the grand total raised.

    Look out for other fundraising coming up and don’t forget to dig deep for Ottery’s beloved Carnival and Tar Barrels.
