Portsmouth & Hayling Island Link

Hog Roast in Hayling Island

On Friday 15th October we hosted a Hog Roast at Northney Village Hall on the Island. The event was organised our Secretary Sue, ably assisted by Kay from one of our Host families.


Marian our Chairperson welcomed everyone to the evening and explained how our LINK operates and that we now have closer ties to Hayling Island.  She also talked about the Chernobyl area and how we need to raise funds each year to allow for our work to continue.


We had arranged for several activities during the evening. We started up with DJ Sam on the Disco (assisted by Emily), and Veronica got things moving by teaching a few Line dances. Simon was the man with the Hog Roast.

We also had a local band "Strawberry Blonde", performing during the evening, and we finished the night off with the Disco.


We even had time to fit in a raffle, a Blackout, a draw for 4 tickets for the Pompey v Watford game which were donated by the Portsmouth FC Study Centre and a free Prize draw for a bottle of Pink Champagne donated by Sue.


The evening was a great success and the turnout was terrific with nearly 130 people turning up to support our LINK, and the evening raised just under £1500. We would like to thank everyone who supported the event and special thanks to several individuals who gave donation pledges towards next years visit of children from the Chernobyl area.

We took quite a few photos during the evening and a selection of these follow, as theses are on the website they are not high resolution if you would like copies of the photos we have added a selection to the Hayling Forum Gallery, our alternatively email us on hog-roast-pics@phil-ccll.org.uk amd we will send then to you if you tell us the photo numbers you would like.
