Sound of Music Evening April 2013
Bawdrip held it's annual dinner and sing-a-long Musical nighton Saturday 20th April in the Parish Hall. Jenny and helpers prepared a wonderful Austrian themed meal of goulash with new potatoes and red cabbage followed by authentic apple strudel (made in Germany according to the note on the back!) As an added twist, on Lorna's recommendation, the goulash was pepped up with smoked paprika which did add a great flavour
Following dinner, we were then entertained as we sang along to everyone's favourite Sound of Music numbers. Never has a room of 40 people sounded so good belting out such classics as 'Climb every mountain' and 'I am sixteen going on seventeed' although checking round the room I think most had done that some time ago!
There was a good turn out of nuns - pictured with Monsignor Sam are Sisters Jill, Ali and Richard(!), big hats, homemade pinafores, carpet bags and of course a lonely goatherd.
Thank you to all who supported this event, prepared the food, decorated to hall (thank you Tricia Green for the authentic Austrian posters) and cleared away after - thanks to everyone's efforts we raised around £200 for church funds.
