The Christmas “Do”


Everyone enjoyed trying to name the everyday articles photographed from different angles (if you call a porcupine quill an everyday item).  Prizes were awarded for the four teams with the highest scores.

The quiz was followed by the drawing of the raffle and afternoon tea with mince pies.

The Holly and the Ivy ....

Attractive festive displays were produced from a range of flowers, foliage and accessories.

 This was a new idea for most of us; a festive hanging basket for outside.  A tripod was used for the construction process.
