Indian meal at the Mela - 6th November 2017
Our very popular annual Indian meal at the Mela restaurant is now a regular "must" for many of our U3A members. On Monday 6th November 54 people attended, some so full (or should that really be empty) of expectations that they were ready to sit down long before the scheduled start at 7pm. As usual the meal was excellent and twice between courses we were entertained by Dolly Parton to a wonderful selection of her popular songs and ballads. Unfortunately, she did pick on some unsuspecting gentlemen to participate in her act but it was all taken in good spirits and thoroughly enjoyed by all. This is the first time she has been asked to entertain us at this event and I'm sure it won't be long before she's back again. But then, I may be a bit biased. Many thanks to Maggie who organised the event - long may it continue. And of course, many thanks to the staff at the Mela - they really do prepare us an excellent meal. Pete S.
