What really happens at a Long Table Dinner…

The last Old Ambo Long Table Dinner had not only the usual one to one conversation exchanges over the great food we shared, but a number of announcements and entertaining contributions are shared across the long table.   Surrounded by the colours of the Loud and Clear exhibition (on the walls of the Old  Ambo for a whole month and introduced to us by John) people shared their various creations Matt presented his mum’s cook book. Matt’s enthusiasm was appreciated by Robyn, the author and by a number of us who purchased some copies. Glenda, the beautiful host of the evening gifted us with her great singing and Jenny added to it with quite a bit of involvement from the audience. Judith presenting her brooches.  Come and join us on the 16th of every month, you might have a song, a brooch, a painting, a book or something altogether different to share as well. If not, just come and add some JOY. Remember to rsvp to Ludmila -...
