Our meeting in December was led by Rev. Keith Edwards when he told us about the origins of the song 'The Twelve Days of Christmas' He found it in a book where it said that it was a way for Roman Catholics to learn and remember their catechism in Henry the eighth's time, when it was illegal for them to have any printed religious material. Keith set us the task of trying to work out what each day represented. I thanked Keith for giving us such an interesting insight to these familiar words. We ended the afternoon with Christmas party nibbles.
Our January meeting was on 16th January when we all met at Sheila Hunnisett's home for a social time together.
Our next meeting will be on 20th February, meeting at the Church at 2.00pm, when we shall be joined by Jeanne Stephens with her Guide Dog 'Breck'.
New members are always welcome to join us.
