Our 1st of 2 March Almanacs, last Sunday was a family affair in so very, many ways. With long awaited St. George’s returns from the ever debonair John Paul, my Kingston Poly ’88 Alumni Alice, Emma & her Dan, our Birthday Belle Nicki, Almanac forefathers Sallie, Huw & his brother David, beaming Andrew & Russ, Dee & Jo All in full On dancing form for the 1st full length set from (also Birthday Boy) Joe who played an utter blinder. All looked after as ever by our George’s tribe Dan, Liv & Gabriel & cracking roasts from new Chef Mark (who’s completely revamped the weekday menu for the St.Georges). A lovely, Lovely day.
