Football, bloody El

No Wickham for us yesterday. We inadvertently organized a children’s birthday party to coincide with the England v Germany match. At the moment it dawned on us what we had done, it seemed disastrous, but by the second-half, the opportunity to stop watching so we could fetch a five year old a drink came as blessed relief.

Because it coincided with the football, the kids’ party attracted a large number of adults too, so we gave local catering company El’s Kitchen a try. Run by Ladywell resident Eleanor, El’s Kitchen is a catering business in-search of a long-term home in one of our high streets. Until she finds one, she runs the business from her own home and through Facebook.

Our order cost £7 per head (an introductory offer) and was extremely good value. We ordered a mixture of feta parcels, bread sticks, salads, polenta cakes and – perhaps subconsciously fearful of being accused on here of sounding too right-on – pork scratchings.

The food was great and well-reviewed by everyone at the party, even those who’d had enough booze to be candid. We hope El finds a shop soon, until then, find her here.

You're a brave man, Nick. I fear that the inclusion of pork scratchings will do little to cancel out the polenta cakes.
