Looking back- Christmas party -7 December 2022

We had a good time and a big thank you to all who helped and well done to Carol running her first solo meeting as Co-President. We sent our best wishes to all those who could not attend. The Gallery has a few photos and there’s also photos of the Christmas lunch.  

We also brought to the party donations for the Purley Food Hub and received their thanks.
