Christmas Dinner

Thursday, December 18th 2014

Sixty seven friends and volunteers joined us at Wathgill last night for the annual Foxglove Christmas Dinner. The evening was started with an enjoyable but challenging quiz, filled with dingbats and Christmas themed general knowledge questions. As dinner progressed eyes kept going back to the sheets as people tried to work out the elusive answers – there were groans as Glennis revealed them!

Our Christmas raffle raised over £200 this year, one of the best amounts ever! Thank you to Linda who spent time selling and folding tickets through the early part of the evening. Of course we must say well done to Ken, who, to cries of ‘it’s a fix’ won three of the prizes!

The dinner, as always, was delicious. We were served a three course feast, followed by cheese, mince pies and coffee.

Martin, one of our younger volunteers, played and sang two songs on his guitar. He performed brilliantly and I’m sure will play for us again at events in the future.

Before long the dinner was finished and the Compass Rose Ceilidh Band got us up on our feet for a couple of dances to draw the night to a close.

Thank you to everyone who helped to make the night such a success. We wish you all a very Happy Christmas and a Peaceful New Year!

What a wonderful surprise to win the hamper in the Christmas Raffle. Thank you very much to whoever pulled out one of my numbers. I shall take great pleasure in sharing the contents therein with family and friends during the festive season. Items will be consumed in Brompton-on-Swale, West Bridgford and Plymouth!
