Forum members and guests gathered at the Ascot House Hotel on Tuesday 10th December for the annual Christmas lunch. As always the room was attractively decorated and the meal and hospitality were excellent and thoroughly enjoyed.
There were 52 attendees which set a new record and a collection was taken on behalf of Jennyruth’s Workshops a charity based at Ripon who had spoken at the Forum during the 2012/2013 season. An amount of £170 was raised again believed to be a record!!
Members and guests left the lunch in good spirits for the forthcoming festive season and the Forum itself will reconvene for the second half of the current season on Tuesday January 7th.
In the meantime members and readers are wished a very Merry, Peaceful Christmas and a Happy New Year.
