Our Christmas meeting went with a real swing. Many ladies had sparkly tops or jumpers on to get in the Christmas spirit, and we got off to a fine start with Jan introducing the Sewing group's raffle to raise money to buy fabric to make more children's Wrap Pyjamas for the Pyjama Fairy charity. The sewing group have been making Christmas decorations for a few weeks and these were either for sale or for raffle prizes. The ladies were delighted with everything on offer and all the gorgeous fairies and Christmas baskets were sold very quickly. The ladies who went home with something from the raffle tree were very pleased. The sewing group made over £150 which was brilliant - thank you everyone.
Before social time we were entertained by Halewood Community Choir who were fantastic! So professional looking in their black outfits with gold scarves or ties. Their leader was vibrant and inspiring so no wonder they sing well under her direction. They sang familiar carols in an upbeat and unusual way. Afterwards we all had to do our bit and join in with some familiar Christmas songs (words were provided). To finish the evening we had coffee/tea and mince pies with some mulled wine too. A great evening! Thanks to everyone who took part in it.
Next meeting is on the 2nd Tuesday - 9th January- as the 1st Tuesday is too close to New Year. All other Tuesday evening events will shift along one week.
