Social Evening

The November meeting is traditionally a social event with a “bring and share” buffet and some social activities and festive quizzes. The focus of the evening was “memories of Christmas past” with books and memorabilia designed to get members talking about their own memories and the things that were important to the celebration of Christmas. We had books of comics and pictures of old products – the “Eagle” comic was particularly popular! – and there were images of chocolate and cleaning products that we had all forgotten about. It was a very sociable occasion with lots of memories recalled.
