December 2019 Meeting

Nineteen members and guests, wearing Christmas themed items of clothing attended our Christmas Party on the 3rd December. A warming and welcome glass of mulled wine was very kindly provided by new members Ian and Val which gave everyone a chance to chat. Individual members brought their own contributions to provide a buffet meal which was laid out for us all to help ourselves.

Then it was time for some games. Our Chairman, Val, had put together a rather unusual game - ‘Guess that Smell’! Eight little fine mesh bags were passed round containing concealed items of an intriguing aroma. It proved to be quite a difficult game, but the outright winner (Pat) obviously has good ‘olfactory’ senses!

‘Name that Christmas Tune’ followed. There were 30 tunes in all to name with only the first 3 or 4 notes played. Despite that there were 3 winners who guessed correctly 26 tunes – well done Mary, Chris and Caroline.

The prize/prizes were then awarded for the best Christmas outfit. There was a tie here between Graham B., dressed in a very festive-themed red and white suit and Heather who was adorned with flashing Christmas lights and tinsel.

Many thanks go to Mary and Derek for an absolutely superb raffle, with the special prize of a Christmas Hamper. Jemima was the very lucky winner.
