With our second meeting of the month falling on Xmas Eve we had just the one meeting but made up for it with a Xmas social the following week.
Xmas featured prominently at both meetings with the first meeting enhanced by the flashing lights of 3 police cars outside for most of the meeting.
Paul Winfield with his Icebreaker and Gavin Meikle gave tehri speeches before Brent Crouch regaled us with what Xmas meant to him.
Gavin Meikle was voted best speaker and Table Topics and Michael John Smithson won best evaluator.
The Xmas Social saw plenty of warm ups and table topics washed down with coffee and mince pies.
Thoughts of Xmas were led by Allan Wadsworht before we held a mock trial regarding the loss of Father Xmas's reindeer. In a late twist it seemed the wily old saint had sold them himself! In the second half we enjoyed some pantomime topics ably led by John Webber.
