The George Goes Back in Time For the Dinner of a Decade

[responsive_vimeo 156705431]

The George in Spaldwick was transformed on the evening on Wednesday 24th February, when it hosted the 1940s Dinner of a Decade, organised by the Spaldwick Social Group. The evening had been sold out for many weeks, with a waiting list! The Dolly Girls were a highlight in what proved to be a superb evening. Click on the video above for a clip of them in action.

Well done to everyone who came dressed up, and enhanced the atmosphere in The George, which was decorated in 1940s memorabilia, including ration books on each table.

Thanks to The George, which provided a delicious 1940s meal of toad-in-the-hole. The portions were certainly much larger than back in the 1940s! The main course was followed by traditional jam roly-poly with custard.

There was a surprise presentation to John Blatch, who was celebrating his 85th birthday. Cheers John, and here’s to many more years.

It was a great evening overall, so thank you to Spaldwick Social Group, The Dolly Girls and The George for making it so special.
