6th April 2019

 

Allendale Open Day

 

This year the Allendale Open Day was held on 6 April and the society had representation at the event. The open day is held to feature what is on offer at the centre by those organizations that hold regular meetings and events of which we are one of many.

We were lucky in that the first table on entering the main hall by the public was the society and we had plenty of interest from people who were interested in what we do. One lady who is new to the area filled out an application form to join us. Wine was on offer for tasting – a French Sauvignon-Blanc, and a Argentinian Malbec.

Along with the chairman, Peter Eldrett, there were Peter Hampton and Geoff and Lynne Jones to not only set things up, but to man the stand. Along with the table cloth showing our logo, Peter Hampton bought along some maps of various wine regions, wine related books and ISO glasses.

Some of the society members also paid a visit to see if they can help such as Ken and Ann Whisker, Maurice Howell, Ken Wood and Trevor and Daphne Knott. Thank you all for your support.

Our presence was well worth attending and it was a good PR exercise. I hope that the society can repeat this in the future and not only at the Allendale Centre but at any other events that are held in the area.
