President, Marion Jones welcomed 45 members to our Christmas Party in December, an event much looked forward to by the members. Marion thanked the committee for setting up the party and for their various contributions to the evening. She explained that our small gifts had been some of the many prizes donated originally for the Hall coffee morning by members and so it was fitting to give them back. Amanda won the birthday chocolates. Every member who had brought an item for the hamper received a raffle ticket. There were enough contributions to make several generous hampers! 5 lucky people were winners. After a brief business meeting the buffet was served.
The party activities included a fun Christmas quiz, a competition for a home-made party hat, a Bingo game, pass the parcel with 2 parcels being handed around and we concluded the evening with some rousing Christmas carols, accompanied by Chris on the piano.
