United Nations...International Night.

From top: Karen serves up, Father Peter pours out and Erica and Laure look likely to tuck in!
The flags of the world, the people of the world and perhaps most importantly the food of the world! If you'd walked along Gower Street on Friday evening you'd be forgiven for mistaking the basement of Newman House as a conference centre for the latest talks on resolution 441 to help combat climate change.
As it happened, it was in fact the Newman House residents enjoying food and friendship for 'International Night'. Nearly the whole house turned up to enjoy the event. There was food for all, as each resident cooked their own cultural and national dishes for eachother to enjoy. As well as displaying culinary delights, the evening also gave the opportunity for everyone to wear their national dress, and many residents were only to willing to display their traditional costumes. From kilts to stillettos and tweed to pearls. There was a truly international flavour to the whole night. And best of all was the opportunity everyone had to meet new people and make new friends. Another successful night provided by everyone and for everyone!
