Monthly Meetings

12th December
Our Christmas meeting

Today we were entertained by the Ashby Spa WI singers, who include some of our own members. They sang a lovely variety of songs including songs by Cat Stevens and Frankie Lymon
and the haunting Military Wives Choir anthem "Wherever you are". They then persuaded us to join them in singing some carols and classic Christmas songs.
A lovely, entertaining afternoon. Thank you.
We continued the festive theme by finishing the afternoon with tea, coffee, mince pies, stollen and shortbread.
