Donington Xmas Party

Arrived on Thursday soon followed by another three members, all settled in and drinks served. Friday saw more vans arrive and a lot of work being carried out decorating the vans, Saturday we gathered just after lunch in the hall which had been decorated in the morning, floaty coffees, brandy and Baileys with mince pies all being served. The evening Christmas party went well with hot ham, pork or turkey cobs with salad, afterwards a selection of cheesecakes and gateaux were offered. A few games were played, one being the chairman’s favourite, along with our own version of “Go Bananas”, a few dances were had to the background music, a raffle was had with a great selection of prizes, thanks to all who donated. A photo shoot was done for all especially for one child who will enjoy his second Christmas, I think all the ladies enjoyed putting Santa under pressure, “how’s your knees Santa”. A quick flag Sunday morning out in the bitter cold weather saw the quiz and the decorated van competition won by the same couple, K & K. Another good rally supported by eleven vans bringing 2019 to an end. L & JB
