Kennet Lodge Ladies Night on Saturday 23rd April 2016
On Saturday 23rd April members of Kennet Lodge (and their any guests!) descended onto Sand Martins Golf Club, Finchampstead near Wokingham for our annual Ladies Night event.
This was our first Ladies Night at this venue and it I for one was very impressed by the food (I had duck salad and lamb shank). Not only did the meat fall off the bone, the portion sizes were very generous too!
We started the evening with drinks, a great opportunity to speak to friends and meet the family of other Lodge members; before sitting for the meal. Speeches and toasts were kept to the minimum, though I did (as current Master of the Lodge) give a short talk; which was followed by my wife who also read a poem.
After a teas and coffees were served we had a short break before commencing with the entertainment. This started with a raffle (the star prize being a bottle of Scotch – it must have been a good one because it was in its own cardboard tube!)
Blobbie Williams (aka Tony James) has a fantastic comedy/parody/tribute act featuring the songs and music of Robbie Williams. But this wasn’t the usual tribute act, but full of comedy and interaction. Not only were people up on the dance-floor bopping away, but we even had members of the audience re-uniting the super-group “Take Fat”!
I’ve had some great feedback from those that attended; and although it wasn’t the traditional Ladies Night members may have expected, it was a fun night that they’ll remember and talk about long afterwards.
