Nov 4th Sat Mexican food evening Over Stowey village Hall, 7pm for 7:30pm
MEXICAN NIGHT Good news! There are no plans to build a wall between Mexico and Over Stowey, so the time is fast approaching to dig out your poncho and sombrero and book your table for a night at Over Stowey's Mexican cantina. Treat your taste buds to a selection of flavours from sunny Mexico! When? OK, it's early November and it may be cold outdoors, but you can be assured of plenty of warmth indoors, so let's forget about chilly outside and think instead about chilli inside! Swap your boring early evening siesta for an exciting Mexican fiesta!

Book early to avoid disappointment (we don't want anyone to be sitting at home crying into their tequila). Mexican attire optional (token prize for the best-dressed Mexican)
Raffle in support of the Musgrove Park MRI Scanner appeal.

In 1939 Antonina Zabinski and her husband, Dr.Jan Zabinski were in charge of Warsaw's zoo. When Poland was invaded by the Nazis, Jan and Antonina had to report to the Reich's chief zoologist, Lutz Heck, but covertly they began working with the Resistance. They put into action plans that saved the lives of hundreds of people by preventing them being sent to the Warsaw Ghetto.
