Last night’s event went well. About 50 turned up to watch presentations by five people. One person was late and crept in at the back near the end of the first presentation. He said that his wife was away for the weekend so he’d taken the opportunity to watch the rugby on the telly.
The presenters were allowed fifteen minutes to show their photos. There was a break after the third one for the buffet followed by the raffle. The buffet, brought by members, looked impressive. People tucked in, some as if they hadn’t eaten all day.
The raffle (items donated by members) raised £130. There were six boxes of chocolates in it, three of which were identical. The boxes of eggs were quickly taken as were the bottles of wine. One person who plays bridge was glad to choose two packs of playing cards as her prize. The last item to go was not the CD of songs by Vera Lynn but was the book of G & H R’s walks.
