Christmas memorabilia - John Hall had everyone at the meeting of Wragby and District Social Group reminiscing as he recalled Christmases in years gone.

He caused much amusement too as he referred to longed for gadgets received as presents, such as foot baths and bread making machines, now languishing in the back of cupboards and said how he loves to give his talks to groups as it brings back happy memories of their own family Christmases.

John recalled a wealth of memories and happenings.

He even took along his own Santa’s Sack and as he 
produced items from it he asked ‘and who found one of these on Christmas morning?’ - including the expected orange and tasty chocolate coins.

Group members are now looking forward to their last seasonal visits of the year - shopping at Grimsby’s Freshney Place Christmas lunch at Brigg Garden Centre.

There will be no visits planned then until April, but hot lunches will be cooked and served in the town hall on social days in January, February and March.

Christmas Fayre - The Town Hall was packed for the annual Christmas Fayre, which was a huge success. Proceeds amounted to almost £1,500, including donations.

The event began with children from the primary school singing a selection of seasonal songs and they were well rewarded with generous applause by everyone present.

They were delighted to hear Santa Claus arriving to the accompaniment of bell ringing and Oyez, Oyez as he entered the hall.

He was given a very warm welcome and during the evening met many of the children, when they had the opportunity to tell him what they would like to find when they get up on Christmas morning.

Local groups and organisations ran games, competitions and stalls of their choice to help boost the proceeds for the hall, with the WI serving tea, coffee and cake in the kitchen.

Thanks go to everyone who supported the event.
