Friday 25th November 2016 - Wine Tasting

Our friends at Reason Coffee Shop and Bookstore kindly hosted a Wine Tasting event. Huge thanks to Neal & Lisa Emery and the team at Reason, thanks also to Diane Richardson for helping to organise the event and to Julia Jenkins from Flagship Wines for the splendid collection of wines on the night.

Reason Coffee Shop and Bookstore do an incredible job, not just when it comes to serving tasty coffee (other drinks are also available!) but also when it comes to reaching out into the community. Their Pay it Forward and Little Larder schemes for the homeless of Watford are very effective ways of making a positive change locally. They also play host to many groups who wish to meet, chat and swap ideas and inspiration, or if they just want to come and knit together!

Anyone who has already been to one of Reason's infamous Wine Tastings will know that it's always great fun as well as being very informative and a golden opportunity to stock up on some cases of wine both for personal enjoyment and also, in this case, as Christmas presents, of course! This particular occasion was no exception and all those who attended had a fabulous evening.

Thanks to all who support the raffle - we raised £58 in all. It was great to have a signed book by top chef, Tom Kerridge going to one of his biggest fans - well done Lisa!
