At The Shed
Wow what a feed!
Last Thursday Tom, Neil and a few helpers set up the Dining room tables and chairs and decorations, for our annual Christmas Party.
Col set up Christmas carols to play quietly on the TV in the background.Saturday morning everyone hooked in and prepared the prawn cocktails.
Here is Dave topping up with avocado.
Tom carved the ham and turkeys
And Paul carved the chickens
Around mid-day people poured in, and the feasting began.
For those who missed out we started with a generous prawn cocktail, and then your choice of any or all of Ham, Turkey (expertly and tenderly cooked by Mary),
Plus there was Chicken, Salad, Jellied beetroot, Potato Salad and Potato Bake.
And we finished with Plum pud, Fruit Salad, Custard and Ice Cream.
We talked and talked and the Christmas Carols were drowned out by the enthusiastic chatter.
John has a wicked gleam in his eye.
During the feast a revolving group of volunteers cleared the rubbish and washed up.
Don and Keith share a joke
While Santa in mufti, was ale (Hahn) and hearty.
Afterwards we all crawled off home looking for a quiet bed for a poppy nap.
Well done to organisers Neil and Tom. A truly splendid effort.
For those who attended, your feedback is requested. If you have any ideas or suggestions on how we might add to the celebrations for next year (difficult I know as this year was so good) but if we get more members partying in future years then space for a start, may be an issue.
We had around 30 men plus partners in attendance this year and there are close to 80 members, so we would like to see more members coming along to such functions.
Wishing everyone a very merry Christmas
Best wishes for 2018.
