This month, we welcomed 33 members and 5 visitors to our AGM. On arrival, members and visitors were treated to a glass of delicious Christmas punch, provided as always by Committee member Janet Bourne. Chairman Chris Harten conducted the AGM, during which it was the Committee’s wish that our retiring Committee Member, Janet Corrigan, was made an Honorary Life Member for her services to the club over the last 30 years. Janet was presented with a crystal glass paperweight as a memento of her time on the Committee. The AGM was followed by a demonstration where five of our members, Janet Corrigan, Margaret Drewell, Lyn Murphy, Wendy Robertson and Maureen Westwood, made lovely Christmas table centre designs. They demonstrated simultaneously, whilst our Chairman, Chris Harten compèred the demonstration and spoke to each of them about their designs. Following the demonstration, we all enjoyed a wonderful Christmas buffet which had been provided by our Committee.
