Last night WI members and friends gathered in the village hall for their annual party. After a reviving glass of fizz they all enjoyed a wonderful three course meal, prepared and served by Phil and his team from The Badger.
Christmas music played in the background although it could hardly be heard above all the talk and laughter.
After the raffle the President, Margaret Denton, thanked everyone for their support through the year and then they were entertained with a humorous poem read by Alan Denton and a monologue performed by Andrew and Margaret Guy.
The evening ended with the singing of some modern and up-beat carols.
