This year the weather was looking a bit touch and go but luckily although it was bitterly cold there was no snow. We kept our members and guests Christmas social event very local, starting with Ted’s Baked Potatoes to warm us up, with a choice of six tasty fillings and side salads. Ted has an outlet in Sutton Coldfield, does outside catering and lives in the village! After a choice of desserts we were entertained by Cannock Wood and Gentleshaw Amateur Musicals Society (CWAGMS – see their facebook page) with a wide range of songs, stories and carols including some hilarious audience participation! Fortunately there are no incriminating photos available :))
The tables were decorated with Ann’s beautiful lamps and fresh foliage, and members turned into Santa’s elves to help clear away and wash up. They also generously donated extra prizes for our special raffle which we drew during the interval. It was a very cheerful evening that put us all in the mood for Christmas and looking forward to a happy healthy 2023!
