The members and guests were entertained by a nine year old soprano busker, who has the vioce of an angel and sang a variety of numbers and carols.
After eating a delicious banquet, Santa (Sr. Val) made a surprise visit to hand out chocolates to those who had been not naughty but nice”.
We wound up the evening with the traditional Christmas pudding and it was a fitting finale to our year.
Thank you to Father leo, members and friends for sharing such a wonderful evening with CWL Bay and Basin.
