December

Cider, Pasty and Saffron Evening.

Saturday 8th December.
Organised by Sam Gubbin and Jess Brookham, Tresmeer village hall was feeling festive with many many people teaming up to bat back questions bowled by Ed the Duck. This may seem strange, a duck attempting cricket at a cider and pasty evening but you don't mess with the Ginger Warrior.
With up to seven people per team you can work out how many teams there were if 120 people came through the door, a lot. This made it quite tricky for the small army of helpers to serve pasty and saffron and keep up with the cheese, crisp and drink orders; but they managed.
After the ten overs the winning team was Tinselitis.



Christmas Crafts.

Thursday 13th December.
This week organised by Louise Cooper, with much help from Audrey who brought along an excellent recipe, simple yet effective. Containing the usual mixture of sultanas, raisins, currants, nutmeg and cinnamon, skin of some fruit plus some suet and other ingredients kicking around the kitchen.
This was a really fun meeting that earned some brownie points with many mothers.


The last week before Christmas sees the county events Tinsel ball and County Carol service sandwiched around our Thursdays meeting also carol singing. The nice old people at Beaumont court kindly put up with us for half an hour before we left and sang at a couple other houses in North Petherwin. Afterwards we made our way to Presidents house Mr Rodger Goodman at Treburtle for a solo by Natalie and mulled wine and nibbles.


The Christmas Party

Thursday 27th December.
Kensey Vale Bowling club was the venue, games organised by the advisory committee followed by food brought by the club. Always an entertaining evening with plenty of fun to end the year with. Find your partner by making animal noises, pick up the paper with your mouth(now we know who is most flexible with the biggest suck) and finally one of the classic team games Find me this, find me that; A blade of grass, bauble of the Christmas tree, a wallet and scarf.



Happy New Year
