:: [ Christmas Social Meeting - Horne - December 2017 ] ::

2016 CHRISTMAS SOCIAL

Photos below are by Bozi Mohacek, taken on the IPhone. Surprisingly good results as no flash was used so as not to be intrusive and not to blind people. Unfortunately the photos have had to be adjusted for lightness and are a bit grainy. Please click on any thumbnail picture below to see full size picture.

Having done a trial run last year, Mrs Chairman advised she would not be adverse to holding the SVVS Christmas Social again at Church Farm. As the Church Warden of the adjacent St Mary's for many years, Mrs Chairman, and long suffering husband, have held numerous functions at the Farm so Mrs Chairman is well versed in mass catering. We therefore agreed that we would welcome everybody to the Farm where we can accommodate about 50/60 people. As it is not possible to use the Tithe Barn at this time of year due to the cold, the event would be held in the house.

We had requested for everybody to advise us in advance of their intention to attend. We were very pleased that 65 people accepted the invitation, and we were very close to having to turn people down. Fortunately due to a number of late cancellations, everybody was accommodated at a final number of 56 attendees.  

Janet and Chas Moody had volunteered to look after the admissions and to serve the drinks. We had laid on ample quantities of two types of red and two types of white wines and choice of about ten types of bottled and canned beers and lagers.

Julie had managed to lay on quite a spread and, as a result of her protestations, I will not be mentioning the extent of the delicacies on offer, although pictures tell the story. There was an awful lot of grub and with the help of Michael Harvey, who acted as late-onset waiter, we managed to clear most of it. One of the worries of home catering is that hubby ends up eating sarnies and sausages rolls for days after ! The evening was finished up with buttered stollen cake, a tradition started by Jacqui and Derek Wright, regretfully absent due illness.  

At the end of the evening our Publicity Officer Tony Russell thanked Julie and Bozi Mohacek for volunteering the Farm as the venue to hold the Christmas Social, and thanked Julie for single-handedly preparing the food. Julie was presented with an enormous bunch of flowers and Bozi with a bottle of plonk as thanks for their efforts.

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year from Mrs and Mr Chairman, Julie and  Bozi Mohacek
