 The Little Shelford Safari Supper is back on this year .  It’s a night to meet people new to the village and see old friends, travel around for each course and get fed in the process.  The evening will start with drinks together with main courses and desserts in small groups before reconvening at the end of the evening,  Everyone contributes in some way, and there are plenty of things to do for those who can’t host.  No need to come as a couple, and dietary issues can be dealt with if known in advance.  Please do get in touch with Kate Beaton (katebeaton@me.com) to find out more and register interest.
