The 2011 Christmas Party

Benjamin Lewis-Skeath "providing first-class accompaniment on his saxophone"

After ringing on December 17th, which had to take place at Blockley instead of Chipping Campden due to a concert in the church there, the ringers all assembled at Little Glebe House in Chipping Campden for the annual Christmas Party. We were soon tucking in to an excellent buffet, thanks to the efforts of David and Maureen Adams, Sophia Lewis-Skeath and Andrew Gunn, and thanks to all members who contributed food.

There then followed a Quiz on a Christmas theme, the Question Master being Peter Kenealy. This proved quite difficult for some, although everybody seemed to know the answer to the question "Christmas Crackers is Cockney rhyming slang for what?"! Joint winners were Andrew Roberts and Keith Murphy with 21 out 35 points, John Nicholls being a close runner up with 20 points.

Carol singing followed, with Benjamin Lewis-Skeath providing first-class accompaniment on his saxophone.

The party finished at 10-30, with everyone having had a good time. Thanks to Richard Lewis-Skeath for running the Blockley practice, and to John Nicholls for arranging the venue.
