An “inaugural winter social event”  was how Fran Broadfoot introduced this very pleasant luncheon and afternoon.

The Social Committee planned, then went shopping , and finally cooked a really delicious three course Christmas meal for the lucky 48 members and partners who came along.

This is what you missed out on if you were not there.

Home made cream of cauliflower soup, roast chicken, ham, baked potatoes, and pumpkin, peas, cauliflower with white sauce, home made individual plum puddings and ice cream, coated with Fran’s famous real brandy sauce. Plus chocolates. Red wine, white wine, soda cordial, tea and coffee , all for the grand price of $30.  The bar was opened for the beer drinkers.


There were a lucky door prizes,

a bingo game

and also to make your brain work, a questionaire on Victorian towns. Brian Morris’s and Chris Scane’s tables were equal winners with the score of 21 out 25 for this competition.

People were quite reluctant to leave; they were catching up with friends. Numbers were down on that which the Social Committee had hoped for and  expected, probably  due to those holidaying in warmer climes, those who were stuck at home isolating with Covid, and those not wanting to be out and about whilst mixing indoors.

But all in all it was a great success and a very happy afternoon. A special thank-you  to the Ladies of the Social Committee, also George Zalkos, Brian Garrett, and Chris Scane for  bar and waiting duties plus the washing up.
