Craster WI, December meeting

BEST BEHAVIOUR: The crossing of fingers paid off this year and the weather was on its best behaviour so that Craster WI could hold its planned Christmas social.

As usual the pooled supper was superb and we settled down with full tummies to an evening of superb entertainment from Robert Whitehead. He provided us with a selection of songs, interesting and amusing reminiscences and anecdotes, all of which we thoroughly enjoyed.

We were pleased that our annual coffee morning had raised over £570, especially since it was attended by fewer people than last year. However, those present must have dug deeply into their pockets. Our members agreed that this is to be split between local hospices.

We left the event with full stomachs and a present from Santa.

We were happily looking forward to next year’s programme as well as fitting in the annual Christmas Celebration at Hexham Abbey and a Christmas lunch during December. Vivienne Lowerson had the added pleasure of knowing that she had won the competition for an orange object.
