Goldhanger Parish Magazine Article - January 2016
Goldhanger, Little Totham and Tolleshunt Major W.I.
Well, here we are at the start of 2016 with lots of outings and celebrations to enjoy. We have a number of new members and we give them a warm welcome to our meetings and activities. Our first meeting of the New Year is on January 6th and we will be hosting a Cheese and Wine Evening for our guests. Many thanks for all the promised items of food for the evening and we will be happy to see any helpers to set up the hall at 4.00 p.m. on the 6th. Don’t forget to bring a drink and a glass for yourself and your guest and some nibbles if you think you might get peckish, although that is highly unlikely!!!!!
Members arrived in their ‘glad rags’ for our Christmas Dinner Evening and it was a wonderful get-together with a Turkey Dinner and all the trimmings, thanks to our excellent catering team headed by Jenny. The food was served most efficiently with lots of choice for desserts. Laughter and bonhomie was the order of the day.
May we congratulate Sheila Holmes and Pat Erridge on their success in achieving 1st and 2nd place in the Annual Flower competition and who were awarded the Crystal Vase and Rose Bowl. Well done to you both.
Julie had hosted a very successful Coffee Morning at the end of November which was attended by a large number of members and villagers. We thank them all for their support. Julie raised £274.00 for Farleigh Hospice and Macmillan Nurses. May we thank Julie and Martin for their hospitality and all those who contributed cakes and savouries for their generosity.
We will all be off to Maldon Town Hall for the Pantomime on the 22nd January. OH, YES WE WILL. This year’s offering is Aladdin and promises to be a good night out supporting our local amateur Theatre Group.
