Christmas Social Saturday, 27th November 2010

Written by Super User. Posted in Events Past

Despite the sudden snowy conditions, particularly in north Norfolk, a good number made it to our winter social at Hethersett Village Hall.  The committee had arrived earlier to prepare the hall and members, once again, provided a superb buffet.  We enjoyed a ‘Table Quiz’ prepared by Andrew Lawes, a ‘Past Gardens Visited’, photo quiz by David King and a ‘Plant-Shrub Identification’ poser by John Metcalf.  Many members had provided raffle prizes, which was most appreciated.

 I would just like to thank members for bringing food and raffle prizes which all helped to make it a most convivial event. 

 Don't forget, our next meeting will be on Saturday 6th January commencing at 2pm at Roydon Village Hall where our speaker will be Joe Sharman on Primroses.  Fingers crossed that we do not have to cancel again because of bad weather!



    May I wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year
