This is Suve. Suve (which he says is like 'soup' with a 'v') came along to our AGM on Saturday, even though it was his birthday. We thought this was pretty impressive, so we asked Gina to bake him a cake. Suve approved of the cake, and says that it made it home to York in one piece. He'd also like to point out that he is wearing his birthday jumper in this photo.
Today is our ninth birthday.
We've been selling our drinks for exactly nine years now so to celebrate, we had a special birthday lunch.
Daisy organised an indoor picnic, complete with hampers, rugs and mini sausage rolls
Champagne was quaffed
Crisps were shared
There was birthday cake
Our birthday cake was made by Gina (she made our very first birthday cake back in the day)
A birthday raffle, with prizes ranging from hammocks and posh vouchers to a box of wine.
Some more cake
A birthday band
And of course, a speech.
We had a lovely time and lots of cake.
Some people managed to contain their birthday excitement better than others.
Generally we try not to be too soppy, but this made us smile. Will and Katie made friends at the AGM, and then went to the pub afterwards. Here are their golden bottles enjoying a quiet moment together.
Thanks for sending in that photo Will.
