Christmas Festivities

Due to the General Election being on the 12th December and St Anne’s Hall is the local polling station we have rescheduled our party.

The party is tonight!

All the usual silliness, mulled wine and … wait and see.

Christmas Party 2018


A very lively and noisy crowd!


The pigs waiting for the stage call.




Was it the mulled wine that did it?  Or the crazy committee and the ‘Three Little Pigs’?







Little bites, mince pies and carols were also on the menu.  Here’s to next year.



Christmas Party 2017

Agatha Christie would have been delighted with two murders (one being a poisoned dog) and an accidental death with a gun.


Putting many of her characters together in one place would have been ‘a nightmare’.



from the left Millie (the maid) aka Miss Lemon PA, Clifton (the butler), Inspector Japp, Monsieur Hercules Poirot, Mrs Agatha Christie and Captain Arthur Hastings.


Thank heavens for the mulled wine, mince pies, Dingbat quiz and Christmas carols.


Christmas festivities 2016

Another Christmas do where the committee play the fool.


Santa dropped in along with Agatha Christie, Isambard Kingdom Brunel, John Lee, Queen Victoria and Prince Albert.

King Alfred made a guest appearance in the kitchen only.

Mulled wine of course, mince pies (rather high baked) and carols to finish the very rewarding evening.

Christmas party 2015

It is always a surprise at the large turnout for our AGM meetings.  We do not waste too much time so, all done and dusted within 10 minutes, having voted in the new committee members.


On to the festivities; mulled wine, savories and mince pies, a quiz and an amusing take on ‘would I lie to you?’  Carols to finish the evening off and…….here’s to next year.



Christmas Party 2014


Twas the night before Christmas and the committee had yet to decide what to do for the party.

The crowd were not going to miss the goings on and battled wind and rain to eavesdrop on the committee meeting about what shall we do this Christmas. Usual mayhem ensued.

Thank heavens for the mulled wine and mince pies.


Christmas Party 2013

There was certainly “no room at the Inn” this year at St Anne’s for our Christmas gathering.  Extra tables were squeezed into an already packed hall and “loaves and fishes” comes to mind for the catering needs.

Mulled wine and savouries to pick at on arrival.  A quiz to puzzle over as the committee disappeared behind the curtains to ready themselves for another Panto with the usual references to local historical or hysterical happenings.  A Torquay pottery teapot and a genie were something to do with it.

More wine and mince pies to follow, finishing with a handful of carols.  Thanks to everyone for an hilarious and enjoyable evening.

Christmas Party 2012

Seven suspects gave clues as to who did it.  No Butler, but there was a Cook and of course, a Vicar.

As always a full St Anne’s Hall watching the play, mulling over wine and mince pies and trying to work out who the murderer was.

A  fun evening to wish the members Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.
