21st December 2023 Christmas Party

Our final pre-Christmas event, well organised by Gerry S, well attended and the usual excellent standard of food from Mark, Jo and their team, for which they received our special Christmas tip. Twelly gave us an alphabetical Grace, acknowledging the contributions made by all the members. Chris Scholey had prepared an interesting quiz with answers displayed on a different grid for each table, so that the winners were the first to get a line, vertically, horizontally or diagonally. Table 2 produced the winning line, which was followed by an elimination process that resulted in Peter Jordan winning a ‘weekend break for 2’….which turned out to be two KitKats!

Steve C was congratulated for all his hard work organising and working on Santa’s Float operation, producing around £6k so far, with the Blue Diamond Weekend to come, so President David presented him with some Seasonal liquid prizes.

Rob and Adrian performed the Sergeant at Arms process, with a couple of notable outcomes: Maggie, Jane and Sue looking like 3 Minions with their yellow tabards and LED lights, as well as telling us about their exploits when on holiday in Majorca flashing their female chest elegance! Then there was the calamity at Hollygate, Cotgrave, when Santa couldn’t find his beard and had to hide in Keith’s car whilst Adrian was dispatched to Gordon’s to collect a spare Santa beard….who keeps a spare Santa beard?? There was a little girl with her parents about 15 yards in front of Keith’s car who was worried about Santa, “is he feeling poorly or just having a snooze?” Jane and I covered for Santa saying Santa was rather tired after 10 days roaming the streets meeting lots of children, he is getting quite old!

The evening was completed with a few seasonal songs and carols provided by Karaoke King Rob.

A great evening providing that warm glow of expectation for a relaxing Christmas.                             AR
