Christmas Crackers

 This was a very pleasant afternoon, the droll and wry humoured script of Alan Bennett’s “A Cream Cracker under the Settee” ably performed by Maureen Roberts was just right for a wet December afternoon.

We are indebted to Maureen one of our members, who has much experience as a local actor and director, for stepping in at the last minute to replace Joanne Halliwell.

We enjoyed carol singing with Barbara Smith, and her acoustic guitar,  another talented member of the Friends and the Secret Singers too before tucking into sherry, mince pies and Christmas cake.  All in all a good start to the festive season.

There was a lucky winner of the Chocolate Bouquet.

Seasons greetings to all and peace and good health in the New Year.
