Christmas 2023

We had our usual Christmas meeting in December with a visit from the Choclate Man. We tasted some delicious chocolate and bought lots. Mostly, but not all, for presents!

We sang some carols and chose our favourite festive hats to wear.

We have had two get-togethers over the summer at Thatcham Garden Centre. It was the first time in 18 months that we have seen each other in real life. It was lovely to catch up and also to welcome new members, like Siev and Steph, in real life for the first time!

Happy New Year

Happy New Year!

Now that we are back in lockdown, and there is a more infectious strain of COVID-19 circulating, we need to be even more careful. We all need to follow the rules to keep safe. 

Great news - some of us have had our first vaccine ?
