16 May Round Up Of May’s Events
What happened at The Low House in May?
Thanks to everyone for their unwavering creativity and ideas in keeping new ideas happening at the Low House in May. After a year of running the pub, we had a weekend of non-stop celebration starting with Afternoon Tea and Prosecco.
On Saturday 4th May in the afternoon, we welcomed over 65 ladies with afternoon tea and Prosecco and an amazing cosmetics sale all held outside in two marquees. Despite the torrential rain, hail and sleet we had during the afternoon, not to mention the strong gusts of wind, significant sums of money were raised for the pub and for charity.
We must thank India Knight for donating all the cosmetics she reviews in her column in the Sunday Time Style magazine. But we couldn’t have made it happen without Teresa, Daniel and all the volunteers for lending us the marquees, crockery, bunting, stationery, and their elbow grease and time to make this such terrific event. India has said she will gladly do this again later in the year so watch this space! Thanks to everyone for their very complimentary reviews on the afternoon – (despite the weather) and let’s hope the next sale is just as enjoyable.
Is there space to have a party at the Low House?
During the evening of May 4th we welcomed all our locals and regulars and quite a few recent customers to a 1st birthday party.
Thanks to Josh and Daniel for organising most of the evening which went on quite late with the usual cheesy disco and party food galore. That was quite an undertaking after the afternoon’s event.
Is there a Petanque pitch at the Low House?
On Sunday May 5th with the marquees still standing from the night before we hosted a friendly Petanque tournament.
Over 30 players battled it out on the gravel and the winners thoroughly deserved their trophy (bottles of wine). Thanks to Alison for arranging the play list and putting the Petanque pitch back together after a year … more friendly Petanque matches are being planned for regular practice so why not come along and have a try?
What is the food like at The Low House?
For a small rural pub, we are really lucky to host such a wealth of innovative and interesting culinary events which represent the wealth of talent we have in Laxfield and neighbouring villages.
Our recent Mexican evening on May 7th was fully booked well in advance and everyone enjoyed authentic food, entertainment (thanks Mike) and drinks (and music! – thanks Kirk).
A big thank you to everyone who helped put this evening together and served during the evening under the watchful eye of our guest chef Gary Oughton.
