I have started my round of Branch Visits with Lancaster Branch who kindly invited me to their Christmas Bash.

I was very pleased with the welcome I received and although some members could not make the meeting, those that did entered the spirit of the event with gusto.

We were set a simple task of making a Christmas Tree decoration, but with only little guidance and told to get on with it!!! Great I love this kind of challenge.

We were furnished with loads of goodies to make our masterpieces so no excuses there then.

The results are below- as you can see we only had an hour to make them and some are not quite finished

However they all had great potential.

We finished the morning with a beautiful spread of food which had been donated by the members.

Even better I was not expected to wash up or tidy away- I must not get used to this??
