WI Christmas Party, 14. December 2010

 

Some sixty "senior" villagers came to the Parish Rooms to enjoy a festive meal, companionship and entertainment. Here are some photos (apologies for the poor quality, taken on a phone).

As is now traditional, the Brownies and Beavers started our evening with seasonal songs and poems, with a novel and highly amusing take on "The Twelve Days of Christmas", in which placards illustrating each of the days were raised in time with the words. This year's meal was a choice of chicken & broccoli bake or fish pie, followed by chocolate roulade or trifle, with wine, tea, coffee and crackers, from funds raised during the year by members of the Acton Bridge Women's Institute. Catering was by "Pamela". After the meal and a raffle we enjoyed a selection of songs from the musicals, pop numbers and some with a Christmas flavour, beautifully sung for us by Emily Peach, grand-daughter of a WI member.
