Fantastic night at The Cosgrove Lodge on Friday evening. It was Cockney Night with Chas N Dave. An evening with Pie, mash and Liquor, which I found out was recommended by Chas and Dave themselves and was shipped in from Southend especially for the 150 guests. Liz Emmett made a beautiful Bread Pudding for dessert. The room was decorated with silver balloons spelling out Chas N Dave in 2ft letters. The tables were set out with tasteful decor and the chairs covered and tied with silver ribbon. I have been to a lot of venues before but I have never seen so much effort being made for the sole purpose of pleasing the customer. With the food eaten it was time to sit back and be entertained. Chas N Dave did two sets and were really good, as was expected. We had Pearly King and Queens selling raffle tickets, dancing and mingling with the customers. The atmosphere was fun and friendly. The bar staff worked hard as did the waitresses. Les Dawsons wife Tracy and his daughter Charlotte travelled down from Blackpool to Compere and do the raffle. The prizes were amazing. From a holiday, hampers, spa day etc 19 prizes in all. They were lovely and spent 7 hours at The lodge talking to people afterwards and sharing their memories and happy times with Les. They were just happy to help and be a part of this special fund-raising evening. I had booked a table for twelve and everyone of my guests had an brilliant night. Charity Events I have been to in the past have cost me normally £100 a ticket and not always with food so £40 I paid for excellent entertainment, fab food and great hospitality is, in my opinion, money extremely well spent!!!! Elizabeth Emmett, your family and staff Thankyou so much for an amazing evening at The Lodge. You worked hard to keep us entertained and provided us all with everything we needed for a great night out. I look forward to going to The Lodge in December and having a lovely Sunday Lunch and especially some home-made Christmas Pud!!!! That Christmas Pudding is just the best!!!!!
