Don't you love Christmas in July?

This is the scene before us as we arrived for our meeting last night.

The tables had been set with all sorts of delightful decorations, themed to colour, a tree stood in the corner and supper of a beautiful Christmas cake and some of the most delicious shortbread you could ever eat was laid out in the kitchen for later..
Helen had volunteered to do the preparations and she certainly did herself & us proud. The scene as we arrived was like a fairyland of lights twinkling and sparkling against the dark wintery sky. I heard that she had corralled her lovely son Shaun to help with the heavy work and along with Sue N, Yvonne and Loris, this team of clever people produced an amazing display. We are lucky to have so many creative and sharing people in our club.
We were all asked to bring along our Christmas "Chantelle" and a few were actually organised enough to have some. Some good ideas for future projects there!
Thanks Helen and team for putting this on for us, we all appreciate your magnificent effort.
