REVIEW: The September meeting was our harvest supper with homemade lasagnes and salads (thank you to Margaret Needham). The speaker was Annette Mackenzie who brought her owl ‘Brillo’ and spoke about how she became ‘Owling Mad’.

In October we had a change of speaker as Kay Hudson was unable to attend (chair yoga). Ian Hall kindly stepped in and spoke about the Bassetlaw Hospice. We were also invited to their Christmas Fair, which some of us attended.

The November meeting was an opportunity to learn about a medieval Christmas. Sam Glasswell from The Bassetlaw Museum attended in costume and gave a very interesting talk.

The December meeting was our Faith Supper and PARTY NIGHT. The mulled wine and food was good. There were quizzes, carols, readings, a free raffle and the Santa’s Sack present exchange. A festive, fun night!

Lunch club visits have been to the White Swan at West Stockwith and The Gate at Sutton. The Christmas lunch was at The Eyre Arms, Rampton and we also had a lucky seat prize and bingo.
