It’s been a while! The next blog post was meant to be about us leaving Westgate. But definitely forgot about that. Pretty sure it’s still our address on Google as well.
Then the next post after that was meant to be a big, excitable summer preview… again slightly dropped the ball there.
So lets just skip over that and get straight into the nitty-gritty.
May was great. Christchurch Food Festival kicked things off in style, and also saw Charles Herbert extend his proud record of working for Los Churros Amigos every year since we were founded. He should probably be given some kind of commemorative award. If anyone knows where we can get hold of a passable fake Rolex, please get in touch.

After being delayed, and delayed, and then delayed a bit more, we finally arrived to start the build at 8.30pm on Wednesday 15th November. Spirits were high – especially after a hard-fought win at 5-a-side.
