Friday 18/12/15 Unison Christmas Party

December 18, 2015

This evening we went to Havant and Waterlooville Football Club, where we called in at the HBC Officers Unison Christmas Party.

I drew the tickets for the raffle and Christmas Hamper, then we chatted to some of the officers we knew. Leaving after an hour for them all to start some serious dancing and having fun.

Friday 18/12/15 Duke of Edinburgh Awards Tea Party

December 18, 2015


This afternoon we invited Havant Borough recipients of the 2015 Duke of Edinburgh Gold Awards to tea in The Parlour.

Of the five who were given the award in July, three along with the Havant Co-Ordinator were able to join us today.

We much enjoyed chatting with the young people and hearing about their D.O.E awards and how they gained them.

Two are now at university and one is working as a Business Consultant. I am sure they will all be successful in their chosen fields.

Thursday 17/12/15 Stakes W.I. Christmas Meeting

December 18, 2015


Never having been to a W.I. meeting before, I didn’t realise what fun the ladies had. Andy joined me and was of course the only man, but I think he enjoyed the attention. Particually the very good entertainer in her short Mrs Santa costume!

We won a lovely Christmas Hamper on the quiz and enjoyed an American Supper with a cup of tea.

This afternoon we were happy to return to Springfield Care Home in Emsworth for their annual Christmas Party.

There was a lovely Christmas atmosphere with a visit from Santa and singing from the “Springfield Chicks.” Members of staff who really rocked!

We enjoyed speaking to the residents, had a delicious buffet and some Buck’s Fizz.
