Christmas Party 2023

A fun evening was had by all at the 2023 Christmas Party. 

After a few games of bridge we repaired to the bar and ate, drank and were merry.

Lots of people turned up, and we had one very special guest who ably assisted the President, Mary Kane, with awarding the spot prizes and generating festive fun and merriment.

Happy Christmas to all our members!
