President Jenny Pocock welcomed members and guests from Pode Hole, Pinchbeck, Tollgate and Swineshead WIs to the December meeting in the Public Hall. The evening began with a performance by the Gosberton Church Hand-bell Choir - a newly formed group who gave us their rendition of popular Christmas tunes.  It was the first time they had performed to an audience and their efforts were very well received.

Susan Farrent then gave us a demonstration of two Christmas arrangements for the table and also had some lovely ideas for home made Christmas decorations.  She was thanked by Jenny.

The buffet supper was enjoyed by all and the special Christmas raffle was a great success.  During the evening, donations had been made to L.I.V.E.S. instead of members sending cards this year. The presentation will be made in 2019.

Members were reminded that the annual subscription fees are due and the treasurer will be please to receive them in January.  Anyone who has a claim for expenses should ideally present their claim before the end of December, so that accounts can be finalised.

Jenny wished every one a merry Christmas and a happy new year and the visitors also expressed their thanks for an enjoyable evening.

The next meeting will be on Tuesday 8th January 2019 when it will be a members "poems and puddings" evening - reciting poems or supplying a pudding for members to enjoy.  Visitors are welcome at our meetings, and if anyone would like further informationor has any questions about Gosberton WI please contact the secretary, Eileen Johnson on 01775 750553 or email   eileenej23(AT - use the usual symbol)aol.com
