Party Epilogue

We had a successful village Christmas party on Friday 18th December principally due to Nick’s great mulled wine (ably assisted by Mr Lidl), Lee’s decorations and Louise, Jay and George’s efforts on the Tombola together with the helpers who passed food and drink around and cleared up afterwards. The generous number of donated prizes made for an excellent Tombola.

But… why such a low turnout? The attendance at the village Christmas party seems to have shrunk over the last few years. Please give me some feedback to Is the Friday before Christmas conflicting with other festive events? Is it the wrong location? Is it the wrong time of day? Should we have better facilities for children? Should we give it up altogether? Do you dislike the idea of mixing with other villagers? Have you any other suggestions?

I believe it is such a good way of introducing newcomers to the rest of the village and other people connected with the village that it would be pity to have it disappear. Please respond and I promise we will do everything we can to get the event back on track.

Fulking Social Committee Annual General Meeting is at 7:30pm on Thursday 4th February in the village hall. If you feel like getting involved come along.
