Hi I used to work at one of the local pubs so I have been a guest at a few hog roasts. On my 28th birthday I decided to show everyone that I could cook. I bought some fish and lamb off hog roast hire Atherstone it was a big salmon. They delivered the hog roast machine I thought, what have I let myself in for. Hog roast hire Atherstone demonstrated it to me and I picked it up first time. The method of cooking means that the meat cooks in its own juices and keeps it succulent leaving time to socialise. This girl I had liked for ages was so impressed to see a man cooking she asked me out and we are still together now. The lamb was perfect and the fish cooked in the oven I did it with salad. My mum bought the minted potatoes as I am no cook. My boss was so impressed he booked a hog roast. Well as you can guess the lamb became the talking point and stopped my friends telling my workmates stories of me being drunk. The theme was red - my friend Ted turned up in red Jeepers creepers those shoes with thick soles. I asked the DJ to Play Jailhouse Rock then sent Ellie over to teach him how top jive anyway he ended up with a sore back. They also came at picked the machine up when it was over. That is all I am confessing to and I’m off to meet Jess bye.

Atherstone was once famous for its hats until the orders petered out in 1998. One tradition that won’t die is Shrove Tuesday. This is a ball game played on a public place- the road. The leather used to make the ball is very thick leather so it can’t go far. Red, white and blue ribbons are stuck on the ball. If you are lucky enough to grab a ribbon it can be changed for money. So if you are in that area and a bit skint join in the game. It has been around since the beginning of the 12th century and starts at Watling Street Road in Atherstone.
