Twenty members braved the snowy, icy, freezing weather to attend the annual Christmas Party. A few members couldn’t come on the night as they were poorly with Covid and germy coughs and colds, so we all wish you well and hope you get better very soon!
Unfortunately our Pass the Pass parcels were snowed in in Walderslade so we couldn’t partake of our traditional party game. After last year’s Christmas-themed quiz proved very difficult, a biscuit-themed quiz was provided to pass the time, but that proved challenging too. Tracy thought the quiz was quite easy as she does have a thorough knowledge of biscuits, but please do not mention Hob Nobs, the ghastly things :o)
The lucky-dip of painted wood slice decorations was well received and we all took some home to decorate our tree. A huge thank you to everyone who painted the wood slices so well, you did a grand job painting so small and perfectly.
Thank you to Neil for providing the evening’s Christmassy music and to Angela D and Myrna for wrapping all the Pass the Parcel gifts. Hopefully The Christmas Party of 2023 won’t be in such snowy weather so we can look forward to playing it then.
Festive Felicitations to everyone and all your families. May you have a restful time over Christmas and the New Year and be raring to paint again in January.
Here’s a photo of most of the wood slices…aren’t they all fabulous? In the other photos a lot of us wore festive jumpers, but the heating wasn’t very effective in below-freezing temperatures so some wore coats over the top…
As previously emailed to you, due to double booking at the hall, the next session will be on the first Wednesday, 4th January and the Saturday session will be on the third Saturday, 21st January. All other sessions from February will revert to the second Wednesday and fourth Saturday.
