The Great Pie and Peas Up!
PIE AND PEAS NIGHT... FRIDAY 19th OCTOBER 2018
Just a quick update - more News later.
A fabulous fun evening. Smashing pies (meat, pork and veggie), tasty mushy peas and lashings of gravy. Quiz sheet, bingo and raffle.
Wonderful effort from our volunteers and greatly appreciated by all.
Friday 20th October 2017 - Pie and Peas Night! WE SOLD OUT!!!
The List on the Notice Board got longer and longer and eventually we had to make special arrangements. With some careful planning we managed to safely accommodate over 90 guests. And what a fabulous night was had by all including some very happy Bingo and Raffle winners.
All the members really appreciated all the hard work put in by our volunteers.
- Special thanks to: Phil & Trev for the double act; Bev, Jen, Carol and Sandra for preparing and serving the food; Suzanne, Jen and Christine for running the Raffle which raised a total of £322.
Thanks to everybody who attended and supported us. Your generosity raised over £700 for our funds.
The Last Pie and Peas Night on Friday 14th July SOLD OUT - ANOTHER FABULOUS PIE AND PEAS NIGHT
Wow - what a night! Tickets sold out fast for this extravaganza. A magnificent evening hosted by Trevor and Phil our Social Events Co-Ordinators. The evening's raffle and bingo were very well supported (with one lucky bingo winner claiming 2 "Full Houses" and a "Full Line" - much to her embarrassment!). The evening raised over £600 for group funds so another HUGE thank you to all those who helped organise the evening, and of course, to all our wonderful members who supported us by attending!
A Short History of Pie and Peas in Royston
Tradition has it that when the Vikings settled Royston in the 9th Century, they built a bakery on the site of our gym. Their speciality was the Viking Pease Pie. This culinary delight had a pastry top with two horns sticking out. There was great rivalry locally with Denby Dale as to who could bake the biggest pie. The 11th century Domesday book records that Royston baked the largest pie in 1086. Today we continue the tradition with our own Great Pie and Peas Up.
On a nutritional note (and this bit is true), a 100-calorie serving of peas (three quarters of a cup) contains more protein than a whole egg or tablespoon of peanut butter. So get them tickets from Trev, follow the Vikings and enjoy a powerful pea protein packed supper!

Last Year's Pie and Peas Night - Friday 14 October 2016
A cracking evening!
This event was yet again a great success and extremely well supported by approx. 65 members and friends who enjoyed an evening of bingo, raffles and quizzes together with great food.
Thanks to Trevor, Phil, Bev, Carol, Sandra, Suzanne and Jen for their joint effort in making the evening such a great success which also raised in excess of £450 for our group funds.
A big thank you also to Carol Ashton for baking such delicious cakes which contributed a further £78 to the group funds and possibly several inches to our waistlines!
