Just super: Solihull Soupa-Talks re-start with tales of 'The Village'

Solihull Editorial 6th Sep, 2021   0

THE ever popular Soupa -Talks lunchtime meetings are starting up again on Wednesday, September 22, when retired headmaster Bryan Fitter will be talking about ‘Going to the Village’– Growing up in Solihull – the life and times of a local lad.

Soupa-Talks has proved over the years to be a very successful formula – diners get a large bowl of freshly homemade soup (rumour has it that it will most likely be a creamy cauliflower cheese soup to start the season, with croutons and baskets of fresh crusty bread and butter) plus homemade cakes, a selection of fresh fruits plus tea or coffee, all for an amazing price of only £4.

Running very successfully for the past seven years, Soupa-Talks meetings are in the Solihull Methodist Church Hall on Station Approach Solihull and start at 1pm every second and fourth Wednesday lunchtime.

There’s always a different and interesting speaker to entertain and always a different homemade soup to go with it.

Ivan Crowdell of Soupa-Talks said: “Everyone is welcome. We even hold but rarely use packets of Cup-a-Soups for those with allergies.

“Allegedly, the soup-maker in chief was, many many years ago, a chef in the West End of London and before that trained in Switzerland.”
