A themed dinner or supper revealing the story of St Alban is planned at Bailies Bar and Restaurant on June 21.
The meal, hosted by Bailies, acknowledges the story of St Alban after whom the city in England and our own suburb is named. The themed dinner or supper on the eve of his saints day (which is on June 22) also coincides with our winter solstice.
Little is known about the life of St Alban, except that he lived in Roman-Britain and is recorded as the first Christian martyr. Diners can expect to learn a little more during the evening.
Packe St Park’s Matariki celebration planned for June 17 has been postponed until further notice. The park’s co-ordinator says that this is because of the weather. We could probably do with a few windy warm nor’westers to dry out soggy ground in our parks and gardens.
Put those neurons and magpie collection of knowledge to good use and form (or join) a team at Bailies on Monday.
