Apologies to members who were too late to make a booking. Make sure you book early next year!!
Providore Barry and his able assistants Chef John and the Christmas Belles outdid themselves, starting with oysters au naturel or kilpatrick or a fruit compote for those who don't enjoy those tasty little bivalves.
Here are a few shots of the guests ...
Joan Wheeler produced the Nativity Play with Margaret as Mary (famous as Britney Spears), Chris Wheeler as Joseph and Barry W as the baby. Jill was a star and Kerri, Coral and Ruth were the three wise women because the three wise men were watching the cricket.
Peter Deane was the Angel Gabriel purely because he could blow the bugle, whilst Val made a delectable Evil Angel. Sid was the donkey (no comment) whilst Commodore Camel got a standing ovation.
Brian Sutton made a surprise appearance as Santa Claus. Not sure why he was in a Nativity Play but he did bring presents, which probably explains it.
The night finished with dancing to Scott, a new musician we were trying out for the night. What did you think of him, members? Remember to give feedback ...
