On a cold, wet and windy November evening our most competent Toastmaster AP kept our spirits warm using Christmas as her theme, and gave us lots of interesting fill in material.
Introductions were to the question: ‘What do you think about Christmas?’
We had the pleasure of two new guests last night, HR & CH. We hope they enjoyed their
evening and look forward to seeing them again soon.
The invocation was the poem ‘The Road Not Taken’ by David Frost, read by JO
