About us

2017 50th ANNIVERSARY OXROAST

In the reign of Queen Elizabeth 1 Bernard Gilpin became Rector of Houghton-le-Spring. He donated an ox to be roasted at Houghton Feast to help feed the poor of the Parish. It is appropriate that our Rotary Club decided to recreate this event to fundraise for a variety of charities . Our first oxroast was in 1967 and this year we celebrate our 50th.Anniversary. It has become such a popular local tradition that customers queue for hours for the Mayor to cut the first slice and present it to the person at the front of the queue.
