Christmas Party




Wargrave Local History Society's December meeting was the Christmas Party. A seasonal atmosphere was created in the room with a Christmas tree and other decorations. Committee member Wendy Smith had made the traditional mulled wine, apple and blackberry pies and mince pies, which inwardly warmed the members on what, outside, was a very cold evening.

The members also took part in a quiz, (in the style of a school 'end of term test'), for which all the questions were based on the Society's activities during 2017. The "Best Memory Award", for the highest score, was presented to John Coulson and Richard Lloyd.

The next meeting will be on Tuesday, January 9th, when Mick Pope will tell us about Activities around the Recreation Ground, whilst on Tuesday, February 13th Catherine Sampson will give us a glimpse of some of the many historical, unusual and sometimes hidden Berkshire Churches and churchyards, and the people associated with them.
