December is such a busy month, so much to be done and all by the 25th, but several of our members still managed to fit in a visit to the cinema to see Lady in the Van, which I believe they enjoyed, and the reading group met to discuss their latest literary selection. The walking group had a ramble around Charlton village and Anton Lakes working up an appetite for their lunch at the local hostelry, The Royal Oak.
Our monthly meeting was held on the second Thursday of the month to avoid Christmas week and was a relaxed evening of festive readings – some amusing, some invoking Christmas memories of our childhood perhaps and others more serious. Each member had brought along some delicious food, so there was a lovely buffet to enjoy afterwards and plenty of time to chat.
Later in the month, three of us attended the Anton & Danebury Group Carol Concert at Weyhill Church – also followed by refreshments in the nearby Fairground Hall.
We will be in the Village Hall on the 28th January for our Post-Christmas Dinner, and it will be a magical affair, as local magician Michael King will be making an appearance during the evening to entertain us.
