Wine tasting

A great evening was had at NEILLS WINES

We would like to thank NEILL WINE for providing the venue. The owner was on hand to explain the attributes of the various wines which he stocks. TESCO SPRINGHILL donated the cheeses, fruit and nibbles and we are most grateful for their generosity. Bloomfield Laser Clinic, Cottage Kitchen, Gabby’s, Groomsport Inn, Groomsport Garden Nurseries, Merab Opie, Neill Wine, Picasso Hair, Spar Groomsport, Stables and Gordon’s Wine Bar all provided items for the raffle.

Groomsport residents want to present the village in pristine condition. The area is popular with dog walkers and we are keen to promote responsible dog ownership.

This means, among other things, that owners are expected to, at least, keep their dogs under control and clean up after them.

We had a lot of responsible owners enjoying the sunshine at the big lunch.

People and their picnics

Everyone was out eating their lunch in the sunshine.

This is how you do it, Groomsport style.
