Jingle Bells, Spring Park Smells
Simon laid an egg
Freddy B poured hot tea
Over Mike Shaw’s head
It’s amazing how quickly the time passes but yes, it was a year ago we last converged on the Garden Rooms of St Augustine’s to celebrate the festive season where Sam treated us to a game of Pictionary (won by the team I was on!) then aided yours truly with the mega easy film quiz (which the team I was formerly on won!). A good time was had by some of us and as with every annual tradition we are doing it again this year.
What treats we have in store for you this year I cannot divulge at this juncture (largely because I don’t know myself) but I can reveal that for the second year Cherie Hamelt-Prince-Of-Denmark will be running her Macmillan Cancer Support charity campaign where we place a seasonal greeting message via a sticker on a Christmas Tree poster then empty our wallets into the collection tin while Cherie holds a Samurai sword to our necks (or in my case, my ankles)!
For those of you inclined you are permitted to bring a wee dram of your own choosing from your own stock (and your own glass, natch) should you be unable to last a couple of hours in our company without touching a drop by kind permission of the Chairman Simon”Snapper” Earwicker. Of course there will be tea and coffee and squash for the hardcore types like me, along with the usual spread of food (and by usual I mean typical of the occasion and not the same one from past years).
So, here’s hoping to see you all on Tuesday 10th for festive fun and frolics! Or not. It’s up to you.
