On Sunday 1st December Chin Chin were at the Thurmaston Christmas lights switch on run by the lovely Dawn and Alan ( left 2 in the picture) and the Thurmaston Scouts and Guides.
Everyone did a great job organising all the stalls and rides and Melton Road and the Memorial Hall were heaving by 3pm.
There was food and drink, stalls and rides and lots of fundraising for the scouts and guides groups.
Here's a pic of the organisers and helpers trying our our wares before the rush. The feedback on our mulled cider was really good!
Well done guys....See you all next year!
Saturday November 30th saw us at another town, Grantham for their Christmas lights switch on.
Here we encountered this motley crew from the local pantomime, Cinderella at the Guldhall. they very kindly posed for a picture before leading the parade. Thanks guys!
On Friday night , 29th November we were asked to provide our bar services at the Borrowash Christmas lights switch on event.
This is a Borrowash community group event and has only been running 4 years but what a great job they are doing.
The crowds came out on a crisp , cold evening to sample the food stalls of wood fired pizza, hog roast , burgers and hot chocolate. There was a brass band, fire performers and carols plus craft stalls and tombolas.
Chin Chin of course were providing the alcoholic drinks. Our customers loved our mulled wine and warming mulled cider. Our tots of spiced rum, toffee apple liqueur and amaretto in the mulled cider went down a treat , with some customers trying more than one!
It was a great night, enjoyed by all....so see you all next year!
