GOOD COMPANIONS


On arriving at The Village Hall to get ready tables for our Christmas tea, there was a welcoming atmosphere of Christmas, with decorations and Christmas Tree, and on finishing the tables all this added, AND there was a plus - new curtains. A big thank you to all who made this so.

Guests and Members were welcomed, although unfortunately, we were about 10 people short, owing to various reasons. We then spent a quiet time thinking about Christmas and its meaning, with aspects of Love, Peace, Joy and kindliness, accompanied by a few short poems.

Guests were introduced and a small gift given to each. Following this, our longest serving member both of the Club and Committee, presented me with a bowl of hyacinth bulbs from the Committee, with their thanks. I shall look forward to them coming into bloom with colour and aroma.

Mr Arthur Browne - who had given us a musical afternoon a few months ago - at the time offered to come and play on his accordion to accompany some of our favourite carols. Following this, we then had a couple of Postmen/Lady Pats, who delivered to each member a Christmas Card from the Club, and any others which had been handed in by their friends.

Time for tea ! The ladies in the kitchen had been very busy plating up goodies, which were then served by the Hostess for each table, not forgetting of course the ever welcome cuppa, we then finished the feasting time with sausage rolls and mince puffs.

There was a wonderful array of prizes on the raffle table which had mostly been donated, and Betty had kindly made and given a beautiful Christmas Cake, everyone having been given a free raffle ticket on arrival, and this was won by Len.

All too soon it was time to head for home, but not before everyone was invited to take a present from our Christmas Sack, as everyone had been asked to bring a small wrapped present. All this ended another happy year.
