Friday Club continues on a Friday. We held our Coffee Morning again in August and Members were picked up and brought along to meet with friends during the long summer break to enjoy good company, have a chat with a cup of tea and lovely home-made cakes. We held a raffle and had a small Bring and Buy table.
We went ahead with our Easter Service , which was thoroughly enjoyed by all our Members.The Harvest Service in the Autumn was also much enjoyed by Members and helpers, with Members bringing along donations which went to the Food Bank. Our Summer Outing was to Highfield Nurseries again. On arrival Members and helpers had a good look around the Retail Shops and the Plant areas, followed by a Fish and Chips lunch with Apple Pie concluding with coffee.
The highlight of the year, our Christmas Dinner, was once again cooked by Dawn and the Christmas Pudding was made and kindly donated by Irene Egles. The Christmas cake was kindly donated by Dawn - it was the one she won at the PFA Christmas Fayre and was shared out on the day, with plenty to spare. We also had some musical entertainment. As ever, all the Members were given a Christmas present, card and a pot of bulbs from the Junior Section of the Boys Brigade. Throughout the year we had a couple of Craft afternoons, where Members made the decorations for our Christmas Tree at the Tree Festival. Members also tried their hand at Flower Arranging and decorated Valentine cakes. Thanks to all who helped on the days.
Our new Chair is Dawn, who continues to be part of the rota of Cooks. We are a small Committee and really need new helpers and drivers to come forward in order that the Friday Club can carry on. Thank you to all the helpers, drivers and cooks without whom we could not continue.
