Pillaton WI Report - December 2012

It’s tempting when faced with writing about an event that takes place every year to reuse last year’s article, but that would be cheating, wouldn’t it?

So here goes, attempting to put a new slant on the much loved formula that is the annual WI Christmas party in the village hall…

Sounds of laughter and chatter float out into the darkness of the winter’s night as we approach the hall, then the shock of light and warmth as we open the door and enter, greeted by enticing aromas of cinnamon and cloves from the mulled wine, mingling with roast meats and vegetables. Tables set out and decked with Christmas finery – crackers, red and green napkins and pretty table decorations.

People sitting down with friends to share over a glass of wine the “make you groan” jokes and wear the silly paper crowns found in crackers.

The feast itself, cooked to perfection by Shirley Floyd, then the distribution of “Secret Santa” gifts to be unwrapped and exclaimed over.

Coffee and chocolate mints, then time to clear away and disperse to our respective homes.

And what is in store for the New Year?

January 14 will see us gathered in the hall to listen to Mike Prettejohn talk about his life as a vet. This is an open meeting, so friends and other halves will be welcomed.

The February 11 meeting has the work of The Samaritans as its theme, and March 11 will be the Annual Meeting.

(Pillaton WI is a friendly group and welcomes new members. Come along and meet us! If you would like to know more about Pillaton WI, please contact me on 351289.)
