It was lovely to see so many members and their guests at our Christmas Party last Wednesday evening.
With plenty of food and a little drink and lots of chat and laughter, we all had a very merry social evening.
We were lucky enough to have Shirley Perkins come along and give us a talk on flower arranging. Shirley was very entertaining and made some beautiful floral decorations which we were allowed to raffle off after her demonstration.
There were 10 pictures entered into the ‘Indoor’ competition by our members and the winner was Geoffrey Childs which a sprig of Holly. Geoffrey will hold the ‘Reg Whiting ’ Award for the year, well done Geoffrey.
The Club would like to thank Shirley for allowing us to raffle the floral arrangements and also to Courts the Florist in Eastwood Road, Rayleigh for donating a voucher for their shop. We would also like to thank Wyvales for their donation too.
We wish you all a very merry Christmas and a Happy and Healthy New Year and we look forward to seeing you all in February.
