Christmas Lunch

Saturday 7th December 2013

At The Corbie Inn
84 Corbiehall
EH51 0AS

What a fantastic day, yes DAY!  We all met up at the Corbie Inn Bo’ness at 12.30pm for our Christmas get together. “Meeting and greeting” old and new members. For Irene and George it was their first meet with the Club but Irene and Ian kept them company during the meal and of course Jim as well. I do hope that you both enjoyed your day and we hope to see you on a run soon.

Tip for a starter on Christmas Day, Prawns and Orange – 1 Satsuma in skin, opened like a water lilly,  Prawn Marie was set over the orange segments. Mmmm it was lovely.

After the fabulous meal it was time for our Secret Santa. Drew’s first role as a Coordinator was to pick the names out of a hat for the members to come and choose their ‘pressie’, Ali took the photos of everyone dipping into the sacks [some photos had to be censored] Jim and I held the sacks of presents. I do not need to report what followed but you can just imagine the hilarity of this event.

Time to mingle and everyone moved around the tables to talk to each other, chatting away as if they had not seen each other for years.
It was lovely to see Frank and Rosie and for Frank to look so well. It was so kind of Alan and Rosie to pick them up and bring them all the way from the West. Fingers crossed it won’t be to long before we see Frank driving again. Keep well Frank.

At 6.00pm every one began to leave for home or up to Janet and Walter’s lovely home for some light conversation and coffee [ok I lie] Jim and I had family staying with us so I do not know when the festivities finished, probably into the wee hours.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the Central members, you are such a friendly bunch of people and it is a pleasure to organise events for you.  Good luck to Jim and Drew our Area Co-ordinators for the coming year but remember “I’m behind you”.

Have a lovely Christmas and a “MERRY New Year” hope see you all in January.
