Parish Club, "Edge" and reminiscences

Just called into the Rosary Parish Social Club to drop off their post and the latest update on the Hall Bookings. Siobhan (20) was there, together with Dave and Denise. Siobhan introduced me to Carling's new product "Edge": bottled beer with a citrus additive. It's one of those young people's drinks that you glug out of the bottle - it's actually very refreshing.

We got to talking about the various trips that she went on with the Faith group in the parish, with stories about freezing at Stonyhurst, singing "Vindaloo" at the end of a Scots Ceilidh, and (when they were all about 12 or 13), stealing Father's sandals because they didn't want to be seen out with him wearing them.

Siobhan was eloquent about how much they all enjoyed the Faith group trips despite the ribbing they got from their peers for going on a "religious holiday". She has volunteered to help with a new group so that must be a high priority this term ...
