Bollywood comes to Crazies Hill - 10th October 2015

Over 60 residents packed the village hall on Saturday to enjoy a first time event for Crazies Hill.

The Residents' Association decided to put on something new for their Autumn village event and chose a Bollywood themed evening. The food was prepared by the local Wargrave restaurant, The spice Lounge and as you can see from the following photos the food provided was very well received.

The starters of Vegetable samosas and Onion Bhajis went down rapidly and were followed by a main course of Chicken Tikka Masala,  Lamb Sag and  Vegetable Curry served with Pilau Rice  and Plain Nan. There was plenty for everyone with many helping themselves to seconds and even thirds.

Dessert was prepared by members of the committee and in keeping with the eastern theme was an excellent fresh fruit salad based mainly on mangoes. Some guests though preferred their fruit in its more liquid form and stuck to grapes. 

Whilst the residents were digesting their food the ladies of the Dancing Nikita Company entertained everyone with a sparkling display of Indian dancing. 

The display was more than just a show though, it was in reality a demonstration and before the guests knew it they were up on the floor limbering up with a few hip wiggles.

Then there was no stopping the crowd who rapidly became a bunch of whirling dervishes..

And so the guests took their seats for a well earned rest while the Chairman of the Association, David Noyes, thanked all those who had helped make the evening such a success. Cath Reynolds and Laura Lord who had organised the food and prepared the dessert, ably assisted in the kitchen by Phil Davies, Tess Dixon and Priscilla McNair. Head Barman Dave Smith and his tasteful shirt. Tess Dixon for ensuring the tickets were sold and more importantly the money collected in, and finally to Jo Leslie and Annie Davies who had decorated the hall in such an evocative fashion.

And so the evening drew to a close with the residents enjoying a final drink or two and reflecting on what a great time they had all had. A community party at its best.
