CHRISTMAS PARTY FOR PARISH VOLUNTEERS
ALL HELPERS WELCOME!


On Saturday 12th December it was decided to hold a Christmas Party for all those people who have supported the Church in so many ways during the present interregnum. The thought was that many people get on with jobs alone or just with one other, so why not bring the whole ‘Church family’ together, adults and children to celebrate Christmas and enjoy the company of others with similar interests.
Tickets were free, but a necessary requirement, so that the number attending could be catered for, as food would be provided with fun and games for all. A list was posted at the back of the Church with party ‘eats’ listed, with an invitation for those who could provide an item to tick saying what they would provide.

Just pause a moment as you read this web page and consider our Church as it looks now. Most of us would never have seen it cleared of chairs, but when you see it in this cleared state, you realise it is the largest public area under cover in St Osyth.


With all the usual church seating removed the fun and game got underway. Have you tried to cut a chocolate bar with a knife and fork whilst others are throwing dice to replace you and don’t forget to put the funny hat on first!



Chose an area in one of four corners identified by a playing card. If your card is called then you are unlucky and must leave the floor. The remaining contestants spread out and chose another card to standby and the process continues until only one person remains. Now we have a winner!




She who must be obeyed, Stephanie in full flow with her instructions on what all participants are to do



Sonia as usual, holding the high card, for those in her corner. It's quite a good place to be



A break from picture taking to enjoy a snack & a chat with Rosemary, our editor for many years!



Doggie bags were encouraged before people left, but
I doubt many were intended to feed the dog!

From the amount of food on the tables it could have been the feeding of the five thousand, but without the five loaves and two fishes. Around 130 people were fed and watered to their complete satisfaction, with many people (such as this photographer) returning several times! Tea and coffee were served in the back room.



The conjuror Michael J. Fitch had the audience doing tricks like 'O'Grady says', warming up his audience. This man was brilliant and we still cannot even guess how some sleight of hand tricks were done.



No!, they are not practicing for the boat race or doing calisthenics exercises, but following instructions from Michael Fitch, given from the platform



The audience were giving rapt attention to the conjuror with the young children seated on the floor in front of him. He gave a number of those on the floor various tasks to help him work his magic. A small young girl Lotti, joined him on the platform, where everybody could see how she was helping and what she was doing , almost becoming herself a staring part of the performance
