Cheats Xmas Lunch 16 December

Brenda and I have attended each year and it says everything that we are back again this year.

I decided to press gang two of the available four grand children to assist with the "front of House Service".  The younger members assisting with the serving have been a feature of this function over the past years. Over 40 booked and then circa 5 more were banging at the door.

Three course lunch with bread and sauce + filtered coffee + chocolate mints. Plus Crackers and incendiary devices included.

Followed by a 3D 'fuzzy felt style' art contest similar to that run by the Tate Gallery (but with infinitely better results), then a 100 question general knowledge Table v Table quiz and then an 'all comers' game of Jenga.

There was also a social visit by the River Police who we don’t see very often.

Time flew and all too soon we were all mucking in to clear the tables, tables and all.

A big THANK YOU to all those that helped with the myriad of tasks.  WELL DONE to the main organizers Nigel (from the infamous Bodgit team) & Anne.

So what can you say for the price £6.50, "Blooming marvelous!"
