Lets Sing Together Christmas Party
''Twas the week before Christmas"........ when 30 members of the U3A Vall del Pop Let's Sing Together singing group and partners got together at the Black Flame in Pedregeur for a pre-Christmas celebration and a great time was had by all.
Kindly organised by one of our members, Liz McLeod, we enjoyed a choice of starters, a festive carvery of roast turkey, beef and pork with all the trimmings, Yorkshire puddings, roast potatoes and lots of veggies, a choice of desserts and a glass or two of festive cheer. The team at the Black Flame couldn't have been more helpful in accommodating dietary requirements and the service was friendly and efficient. Very many thanks to them.
Liz provided us all with Christmas jokes (better than the usual cracker variety!), but I fear our President and Musical Director, (a term applied loosely!!!), Bob Welham, will be "entertaining" us with them for months to come 😩😩😩.
There was plenty of Christmas attire on show with festive jumpers and glitzy outfits topped off with reindeer ears a plenty.
A free raffle saw Carol West win a very nice bottle of wine and Janet Evans won 2 tickets to the Alcalali panto ( Oh no she didn't, oh yes she did!).
Lots of chatting and laughter with good friends made for a lovely afternoon.
The Let's Sing Together Group meets weekly and is a fun group for those who enjoy singing and we sing a variety of songs from the 60s to present day, Christmas songs and carols. You don't have to be able to sing well, just enjoy singing and having fun and all that is asked is that we leave smiling 😁😁. Only a year ago the group commenced with 4 members, this number has grown to 24, possibly encouraged by the coffee and cakes enjoyed in the interval!
The U3A Vall del Pop Let’s Sing Together group were delighted to be asked to sing at the December U3A Caring and Sharing coffee morning at The Shack, Jalon on 21st December. Traditional carols and Christmas songs were enjoyed by all and it was lovely to see everyone joining in and singing along. There was a super free raffle with lots of lovely gifts including a very kind donation by Belinda of Adorable Aromas, who was selling her beautiful handmade wax melts at the venue. Several U3A members treated themselves and were pleased to hear Belinda will be selling her goods twice a month at The Shack. A welcome buffet was then kindly provided by Mark, owner of The Shack, as well as delicious mince pies and mulled wine that helped to lubricate the vocal chords!! Some members even enjoyed a hearty full English breakfast which looked very inviting indeed!
