Our lunch this year was another huge success enjoyed by all.
Those who couldn’t go missed a treat. Grateful thanks must go to Mabel for organising
the event. Crackers, paper hats and festive joy were very much in evidence. Our
choir entertained us with melodic singing. Carols were sung and Michael was an added
plus with his seasonal sing song. The
raffle prizes delighted those that won and were the envy of others!
Unfortunately there were no slippers this year George! (An In joke). Michael
had our brains turning cart wheels with his Christmas quiz but one clever group
had every answer correct. Well done them. A visit from the great man himself,
Santa Claus, and not forgetting his wonderful assistant, Mrs Claus, brought
smiles of delight to the people in anticipation of gifts to follow. Thank you for
taking the time out of your busy schedule to visit us.
Thanks must go to the staff at Seaham Golf Club for their
delicious food and wonderful service.
We’re already looking forward to next year’s lunch.
A big thank you to all who made this a great success.
Social Group Outing.
Thirty of our members set off from Seaham for what was to
turn out to be another wonderfully enjoyable day ahead. Chocolate to eat on the
way and a raffle not to be missed. Sorry no Turkish Delight Julie. First stop
was to Mains Gill Farm shop for a bit of retail therapy. The quality of their
foodstuffs, and numerous delightful household and Christmas items to buy left
many with a hole in their pockets! It was a good job the bus had a big boot for
the purchases of some. The food in the café was first class and their cream
cakes were too great a temptation for most!
On to Richmond next to the delightfully quaint Georgian
Theatre where seats seem to be right on the stage amongst the actors. Aladdin
was the Pantomime this year, with a guest appearance from Freddie Mercury as
the Genie. There was much jeering, booing and hissing, “It’s behind you” ing
and slapping of thighs! Light bulbs were thrown at the baddie with great gusto.
Laughs were a-plenty and the whole performance was first class. Aladdin did get
a shock from his audience when he said, “I’ve been silly haven’t I?”, “ Yes”, immediately
came back from the whole auditorium. Unexpected, as the Panto dame remarked. One
of the best Panto Dames around. It was lovely to see some young members of the
cast involved too. Well done everyone. Highly recommended. Ice creams and
drinks in the interval too.
But all too soon it was time to go home, happily worn out after lots of laughter and fun.
