Christmas Fair:
The fair was very successful and there have been a lot of favourable comments. Points to consider if we decide to hold another one next year:
Amble choir could be invited along for the carol singing.
Bill suggested we liaise with the Church and perhaps hold a joint event.

Burns Supper:
Alison reported that all tickets had been sold and 3 takeaway meals ordered.
All catering has been organized. Alison and Violet will compile a shopping list and do the shopping.
Agreed to meet at the Hall on Saturday morning at 9am to set up.
Chris will devise a short quiz for the start of the evening as people arrive, and we will also serve a welcoming drink.
After the meal we will invite anyone who wishes, to provide entertainment. Tessa will bring some of her musical instruments and it is hoped Garry will play something on his bagpipes.
