News from Capel W.I.
The AGM was held in November and the Committee for 2016 was elected. After the usual notices and reports were read we had a refreshing ‘cuppa’ and slice of cake, courtesy of our hostesses of the evening.
After this our ‘crafty’ ladies set about making decorations for our Christmas tree that was put in the churchyard again last year.
On the 5th December several ladies decorated our tree and very pretty it was too. When all the lights went on at night it was a beautiful sight and lovely to know the Capel WI tree was there, shining brightly.
Then on the I Oth December our Knit and Natter Group gathered at the ‘Star’ at Rusper to have a Christmas lunch organised by Sue McMillan. We had a thoroughly good time and ate a lovely meal amidst lots of laughs and chat. Have to do it all again next year!!
On the 15th December we ended a very successful year by holding our annual Christmas Party in the Village Hall. We all looked very Christmassy and ate scrummy food, had a glass, or two, of wine, took part in two Christmas quizzes and were thoroughly entertained by a brilliant pantomime directed and starring Ann Moon and her supporting cast, Linda, Doreen, Val, Marion, Jessie and Tina. The lighting and curtains were handled by Pauline. It was really funny and had us all in stitches.
It was an excellent evening and a very good way to get the Christmas festivities started.
PS Don’t forget that our first Jumble Sale will take place on Saturday, 5th March!
