The Wine Club got December off to a seasonal start with their Christmas party on the 4th,
at the Christchurch Centre.

On arrival, we found a set of Christmas Carol anagrams to solve and these were correctly identified by Janet and by Chris. An excellent mulled wine added further to the pleasures of the evening, while the buffet was as appetising as ever, witness to members' culinary skills.
Once that had been dealt with, and the raffle drawn, a potentially embarrassing game of pass-the-parcel had us facing such forfeits as expounding on Father Christmas for one minute, singing the chorus of Jingle Bells (with lots of help), trying to name the months backwards (this was confusing: someone tried to spell each month backwards!), naming six red wines (passed with flying colours).
The prize at the centre of the parcel was a handy foil bottle-pourer which went to Maureen. "Pass the hat" was an entertaining final game.
