Stokesley Bear: February 2017
This evening Rebecca took me out to dinner. I was so excited. My excitement turned to confusion as we appeared to be going to the circuit office in Stokesley Methodist Church. As we arrived in the hall we were welcomed and shown a place to hang our coats. It was throwing it down outside but sadly my coat wasn't able to be hung up to dry.
The hall had been decorated with bunting and tables beautifully laid with promising smells coming from the kitchen. There was a choice of drinks, while we waited for the meal to start: non-alcoholic champagne or fruit punch. As I sipped my drink, I perused the menu.
Before too long, the main course arrived: poached chicken breast in velouté sauce with carrots, peas and new potatoes. For dessert we had a choice of Pavlova or cheesecake or fruit salad. The food was delicious and certainly showed the kitchen off to its best. Over tea, coffee and mints, I wondered how many other people will be taken to dinner at Stokesley Methodist Church and whether they will be made to feel as welcome as I was.
