Monday Club and Knit and Natter Group: the members got together on Monday, December 2 for a Beetle Drive and Christmas Party. Food was prepared and served by Gloria with help from Vanessa and Sheila. Elizabeth was in charge of the entertainment. The afternoon started with a game of Stand up, Sit down Bingo and this was followed by a game of Beetle Drive. Although many of the ladies professed not to like the game there was a great deal of noisy fun and laughter. Throughout the afternoon names were drawn out of a bag in an Irish raffle and the last name drawn won the prize. After a substantial tea the raffle was drawn and the party drew to a close. Thanks were also due to three husbands, John, Harold and Douglas who bravely faced a room full of women to help put the chairs and tables away. The Knit and Natter group have closed for the Christmas holiday and will start again on Monday, January 20; the ladies have decided to find another project for their knitting skills, because they have had enough of knitting beanie hats and baby cardigans. The next Monday Club meeting is the new year dinner at the Bridge Hotel, Walshford. There are still some places left if anyone would like to attend. A two or three course meal is available with three choices for each course; the meal will be served in the Byron Suite. A coach has been arranged and this will pick up from four points in Shadwell.
