PEACEHAVEN WI: Although early in December, our last meeting of the year was held on December 5, and everyone was in party mood as we exchanged Christmas cards. A competition was held for the best seasonal hat, which created an amusing interlude and was applauded by all.

After a delicious tea (almost a meal in itself) thanks to our hard-working caterers, Margaret and Peggy, we were regaled with songs from Dave, a mixture of carols and well-known tunes from the past, accompanied by his side-kick, a huge inflatable bear. Unfortunately, or fortunately the bear did not sing but did a lot of jiggling to the music.

I am sure we all went home with happy memories of the afternoon and look forward to another fruitful year in 2019.

Our best wishes to you all for Christmas and the New Year. (Joy Allen).
