MEMBERS went for their Christmas meal at Friern Manor. With good food and a pianist to entertain this was a great night, many thanks to Denise Nice for making the arrangements.

At the December meeting a Christmas party was held, with members supplying a sumptuous buffet.

There was much laughter as everyone took part in pinning the tail on the donkey and childhood memories were provoked with passing the parcel.

A very funny sketch, performed by Gill Morris, Denise Nice and Margaret Clamp, made the evening go with a swing.

Thank you to president Gill Morris and all the ladies who worked so hard to make this a fun evening. Congratulations were given to Jane Woodman on her 60th wedding anniversary.

There were three winners for the competition cup Jane Woodman, Joy Ridgewell and Iris Crane, so each one will hold the cup for three months in 2013. Dorothy Haws and Grace Patch won raffle prizes.

Our next meeting is on January 8, 2013, at West Tilbury Village Hall, from 7pm to 9.30pm. The speaker will be a community police officer.

Any ladies who would like to join us will be most welcome.
