We had a great time at Helen's event. We couldn't get into the allotment but Sunday Dinner was still full of the produce from the garden and it was nice to taste the home grown, home cooked food. Helen is good company, chatty and nothing was too much trouble.
Helen made us very welcoming and her Sunday roast was simply delicious ???? with fresh vegetables from her allotment.We were also given some rhubarb and beans to take home which was very generous of her and it was the same with the portions she served.will attend Helen 's other events when we return from the Far East.Well done,Helen and Megan too!
