CHRISTMAS PARTY

December 2008

Your reporter has to admit that, in an unusual display of disorganisation, he had to leave the meeting almost before it had started.  (And by the time he got back all the clearing up had been done - so it was not all bad).  But there are fewer photos than usual and no photos of the main event.  Surely someone took some photos.  If they did, please bring them along to a meeting and lend them to him.

Ted Garbutt, Henry Metzger, Alma Darby, Bill Pope and David Fitzgerald-Plummer Ready to start, with Ted Garbutt, Henry Metzger, Alma Darby, Bill Pope and David Fitzgerald-Plummer - and mainly a wonderful buffet laid on by Megan Fitzgerald-Plummer. All the tables were decorated All the tables were decorated, in this case by a furry green thing, that looks harmless enough.
And the hall was brightly decorated thanks to the Holy Trinity Social Club. the hall was brightly decorated There was a nice display of photos by Reg Aston ... photos by Reg Aston ...

It is difficult to think of a suitable comment for this character.
Any road up, your reporter understands that there was a full house, and the buffet was excellent.  Then the children of the Holy Trinity School Choir arrived and sang Christmas carols and songs to the great pleasure of the assembled company.  Then the raffle took place.  And then everyone went home after a cheerful Christmas party.
