THE meeting was opened by the president Heather Casson. The Christmas lunch is to be held at the Oaklands on December 9 and a day out at the Queens Hotel in November were discussed.

We had a fun afternoon with a talk by Dr Kenneth Lea on the joys of Christmas.

He read poems and played the piano and we sang carols.
