Pudding Time

If you noticed the warm smell of baking wafting through Fearnan last Saturday, it was a sign of the preparations for the 2013 Pudding Night.  A record number of 27 puddings were being prepared, baked and decorated before being delivered the village hall.

PUD NITE 9.2.13 00001Syrup Sponge, Jam Roly Poly, Cranachan Trifle, Banoffee Pie, Rice Pudding, Cheesecake, and many, many more. All the old favourites were there, and a few new ones besides.

And the number of puddings wasn’t the only record for the night – over 50 people came this year.  Sue set the proceedings in motion with an Address to the Cloutie Dumpling – the true chieftain o’ the puddin’ race – and we were off!

Katie and Andrew provided the live music, and we also enjoyed short pieces on the piano PUD NITE 9.2.13 00000from both Bea and Jay.  I’m sure we’ll be hearing a lot more from these youngsters in the future.

And 2 hours later, the puddings were all gone and it was over for another year.  Roll on 2014!

(I’m really sorry that there are so few photos this time, but thanks to Julia for providing the ones we have.  I’m afraid I had one of those computer moments that cause much gnashing of teeth, stamping of feet and a strong desire to dump the computer into its own trashcan.  One minute I had a screen full of colourful pics of lovely puddings and happy people – the next I had nothing but a blank screen!  A corrupt file, I’m afraid, and not a photo from the evening was left. Next time, I won’t delete them from the camera until I’ve got them on the website……..)

About Fearnan Village Association

Fearnan Village Association was formed in 2007 to provide a means through which those who live in the village can come together to discuss and respond to issues of importance to the village, particularly those that will have an impact on our quality of life. We also organise social events, such as the very popular Pudding Night in February, Strawberry TeaZ in July, and other events and coffee mornings throughout the year.
