The last meeting of 2015 went off with lots of songs, laughter and merriment! The members firstly watch 12 members from The Growing Older (Dis)Gracefully Dance Group. The Group usually has 24 members but we saw 12 performing beautifully. After the Group demonstration they welcomed WI members to join them either hand clapping, dancing in the aisles or joining the group. Some of our members had a wonderful time dancing and swaying to the music with the Dance Group.
Next we had our Secret Santa parcel receiving. Each member who had brought a £5 present was given a raffle ticket and the tickets were pulled out and the member went up to receive a Christmas gift.
By this time everyone was in the Christmas party mood so we went to get our refreshments. We had mulled wine, mince pies and tea and coffee. Whilst all this was happening we also took part in a Christmas Carol quiz.
To finish off the evening we were treated to some wonderful Christmas Carols sung by Halewood Community Choir. The harmonies and choice of carols was just lovely. Once the Choir had sung their medley of carols the WI members joined in singing some old favourites.
It was a perfect end to the year. Roll on January when we shall be celebrating our 3rd WOW birthday.
