Christmas Party

Our meeting on Wednesday December 19th brought to an end another successful and enjoyable year. As is customary on this last meeting of the year there is a festive atmosphere to which everyone contributes. There was an excellent turn out with around 40 members who enjoyed the pre-meeting coffees , mince pies and Christmas cake.  The random seating arrangement this year was devised by selecting a playing card, so that those holding the four aces, for example, sat together at one table.

Once refreshments were cleared away , Eric Caton our esteemed President embarked on one of his speciality quizzes, this year featuring a test of memory on once well-known TV adverts. Despite relatively poor scores by the teams there was a good deal of healthy banter when the answers were read out.  There then followed the annual singing of Christmas Carols, selected by the members and to the accompaniment of Brian Robinson at the piano and Tom Powell as master of Ceremonies we saw out the Old Year in good voice.

Looking forward to 2013 our first meeting will be on Wednesday January 2nd when we welcome back our local MP Philip Davies for his “Westminster Update “.

    Members entered into the Christmas spirit with their wit and friendly banter when it came to the annual paying of the subscription. Our normal biscuit ration was replaced by mince pies for this meeting. Luckily there were sufficient mince pies left over from the Open Meeting two weeks previously. The cheese and Christmas cake supplied by the Registrar was a welcome addition.

    Eric was resplendent in his Christmas elf hat. The TV advert catch phrases seemed to be familiar to most members but defining the actual product appeared much more difficult.

    There were prizes for first and second places and the winners were more than happy to receive a tray of mince pies.
