It’s the most wonderful time of the year!

We’ve been so busy over the past couple of weeks that I’ve barely had time to blog.IMAG0069

On Saturday 13th December we had the great honour to greet Father Christmas at Strand Quay as he arrived by boat.  We now know the chords to “Here comes Santa Claus” rather well!

It was a bright but bitterly cold afternoon – well attended by children and parents alike  and we managed to add to our St Michael’s Hospice collection considerably.  Thanks everyone.

Tuesday 16th December was our Christmas Party.   Our MC Mr Kenneth Hall did a fantastic job of overseeing the event (devised by Mr Ian Burford).  A great Christmas meal was served by the Queens Head staff and we entertained each other (hopefully) with party pieces and a great sing song – accompanied obviously by our Ukes.  Thanks to Pam Stroud for her financial services too.

STRAND COURT CHRISTMAS PARTY

 Thursday 17th saw us, with somewhat depleted numbers, entertaining the folks at Strand Court.  They were a brilliant bunch, joined in enthusiastically and were incredibly generous with their donations to our St Michael’s Hospice fund  -  and their mince pies and sherry.  Thanks again.

This Tuesday 23rd December will be our last get-together before Christmas.

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to all our supporters – remember – Four Strings Good.
