  • It's a buffet, so all tastes are catered for, there is a very good choice even for the fussy eater.  There is a bottle of red or white wine between 2.

  • 35 pound seems alot of money, for  a buffet and a bottle of house wine. I went over to El marques today, they have on offer , breakfast and evening meal for only 13 euros, might go for that on the  Saturday and make a full day off it.

  • Good lord!!  The evening is in aid of charity to serve the local well deserving causes.  The normal El Marques menu of the day dinner menu inc in the ?13 dinner and b/fast charge is a this or that option not a full buffet where the waste element always has to be catered for.  Who said that the wine is to be house wine?  Can't see that in any correspondence - maybe a special one has been chosen?  Finally, the price is 35EUROS not 35POUNDS.  At the rate of exchange today at 16.05 this is 30.66POUNDS so thanks to the rate of a little over ?1.14 to the GBP you have now saved 4.34PDS!!!  If you get your money changed at the foreign exchange shop by the bus station then on Friday you should get ?1.11 for your tired old wasted pound!!

  • Yes it is a charity event but the Lions rarely make any money from the evening.  This year the way things are they'll struggle to break even.  Last year the cost was ?40 a ticket, this year they have brought it down as far as they can.  There is excellent entertainment lined up, so dig out your bow ties and your dancing shoes, let your hair down and have a really good night out.  If they do make any profit I can guarantee it will go to a very good cause.  The photos of the evening will be posted in photo galleries.

  • Check out this link to the Lions web site.  Many of the articles are about actual fund raising events but if you scroll down you will find information about many of the causes.
