Beadnell WI - December meeting

Beadnell WI finished off 2013 with a splendid Christmas party. Very few members were unable to attend and the hall was buzzing with everyone in party mode and dress.

During the preliminaries, members were reminded of the New Year luncheon to be held at the Beadnell Towers Hotel on January 10.

The members’ meeting on January 9, will also involve food.

There will be a bring-and-buy sale of cookery books and a cookery demonstration by the head chef of Eshott Hall Hotel, Chris Wood.

The competition on that evening will be the option to provide either a suggestion of what to do with left-over turkey, or to describe a recipe that went wrong. The choice is yours.

Our Christmas party followed its traditional pattern of being a sit-down meal.

This year our darts team had volunteered to cater for the event.

They certainly hit the bulls-eye with a fantastic selection of casseroles and a fine array of desserts. Diets were cast away as we eagerly indulged ourselves.

Santa’s sack did the rounds, together with the Christmas post, after which Ciara regaled us with an amusing reading about a very PC Christmas.

Fun was then had by all as Doreen and Dorothy organised an elimination heads and tails game, followed by a novelty raffle in which members had to battle for prizes.

The competition for something which glitters was won by Wynn with an elegant shoe. Pat and Lynne were runners-up.

The evening ended with a resounding vote of thanks to our arrows ladies.
