THE Town Church’s pews were filled with islanders enjoying chowders, goulashes and broths yesterday for this year’s Big Soup Kitchen Challenge.

The event, which is in its fourth year, was raising money for Bridge2Haiti and the GSPCA.

There were 16 soups on offer, which were created by local restaurants and cafes, and islanders were asked to rate the soups out of 10.

The creator of the winning soup will receive an engraved plate.

‘There is a lot rivalry,’ said Bridge2Haiti founder and soup event organiser Sarah Griffith.

That was shrewd way of upping your sales.

You get people to buy sixteen cups of different soups so that you can rate them in order. Very clever.

How much was each cup? A pound?

Robin Hood lives on.

There was a proper soup kitchen at the top of Cornet Street in 1936 - opposite the Kentish Arms (aka The Cat House) at St Barnabys ( or was it Saint Barnabus?) The Building must still be there, though a long time since it was a church I reckon. We were pretty impoverished in those days and we used to get our main meal of the day there instead of coming home from school to nothing for dinner. Ah, but yes So many people were desperately poor back then -poor but honest! Bit different from so many in these undisciplined times.
