General Meeting Christmas 2019

Our December meeting in 2019 was again based on a Social theme with displays from some of our Interest Groups so that we could all see how much they enjoy their activities.

The Ukulele, Singing For Fun, Play Reading and Line Dancing Groups provided the entertainment. In the quieter moments members could socialise with other members, who they would not always have the opportunity to talk to, with a Tea or Coffee and mince pie. Many members wore Christmas sweaters, tee-shirts Hats, etc. to add to the festive theme. In addition we had displays from the Local Research group and Quilting.

Jean and her team at Charity Craft would like to thank you all who came and supported the Essex and Herts Air Ambulance. They made over £550 on the raffle and items on sale, it will help to keep them flying. We hope we never need them but nice to know they are there if we do. Many thanks to the Charity Craft group and the ladies on the craft stall for all their help.

On behalf of the Committee I would like to thank you for your donations to St Luke's Charity Christmas Card many signed in lieu of sending Christmas cards. We raised £70.00 and have forwarded the money to them.
The card will be at the back of the hall at the next General Meeting. Thank you to Bernie and Carol Smith for sorting this out.

Finally we would like to thank Paul for organising the event and to all those who attended and took part.

Without you we would be nothing!
