Celebrating Valentine’s Day and a Birthday Surprise

Members and Guests enjoying the evening.

Sutton Coldfield Catenians hosted a Valentine’s event at their meeting on Monday 14th February at Moor Hall Hotel, Sutton Coldfield. Members wives and guests were entertained to cheese and red wine tasting with all having to identify the name of a range of wines and cheeses, country of origin and if possible for the wine the price. Organising the event was the circle’s own sommelier Tony Walsh. Taste buds were severely strained. There were a few correct answers but the availability of free samples of red wine seemed to overtake any identification required. All seemed to enjoy themselves no doubt with a few hangovers the following morning!!!! However, the highlight of the evening was the presentation of a bouquet of flowers by President Peter Westbrook to the circle’s own Valentine – Val Hopkins wife of circle member Paddy Hopkins who was celebrating her birthday that day.
