There wasn’t much space left in Whitley Village Hall, for our Womens Institute Christmas Party.
Silent Night wasn’t the theme either, as 72 members celebrated the start of Christmas on Dec 1st. Friends gathered, a glass of bubbly to start off the evening, followed by a beautiful meal served by Rachel Gates (caterers).
Entertainment from Francesca Davis and her sister. These talented young ladies sang through out the evening, many Christmas favourites, which encouraged more members to dance and have fun than ever before.
We enjoyed festive quizzes, and 10 lucky members went home with beautiful poinsettias, won as table prizes. All members recieved a special present for Christmas from the Committee.
Gifts were given to Jenny and Jonty, who were leaving the committee, to thank them for their dedicated service, as well as gifts for the two people who had set up this web site for us.
The evening finished with Auld Lang Syne, as carriages awaited!
THANKS MUST GO TO ALL THE MEMBERS WHO STAYED TO HELP TIDY THE ROOM. It had never been cleared so quickly/.
Best Wishes for Christmas to all our Members.
