The Pensioners Christmas Party (added : 14/03/11 : MG)

A letter from Jenny Wellard, Castle Bytham, which appeared in the Glenside News (February 2011) …

Having moved into Castle Bytham this year, this was my first foray into the Pensioners’ Christmas Party but what an experience!

The Village Hall was beautifully decorated and the glass of sherry on arrival was welcoming after negotiating the icy pavements.  Everyone was dressed in Christmas outfits and made me very welcome indeed.  There were bingo cards laid out at every place, along with a raffle ticket and we kicked off with bingo.  Now not having played bingo for 50 years (in those days we called it Housey Housey) I must admit I did get a bit confused in the beginning; however all was well as I won a prize.

We were then served a three course Christmas lunch with copious amounts of wine and after the lunch mince pies were brought round.  Next on was dancing to the hits of the 1950’s and 1960’s (happy memories), then we had the raffle at which I won another prize.

I reeled home about 4.30pm after having a wonderful time.

I know I speak for everyone who attended when I say a very big “thank you” to everyone for all the hard work, not only on the day, but also during the year, and is it too early to put my name down for next years party?
