December meeting - It's My (Christmas) Party

Monday, 10 December 2012 § 0

On a rainy and cold night in Leeds we had the warmth of Christmas spirit for our Buns & Roses Christmas meeting.  Unfortunately not everyone was able to make it there, including Hayley and Gemma who were stuck on the M62 in snow on the way back from Manchester and didn't get back in time to join in with our festivities.

There was an incredible spread of food including a fabulous cheese ball from Susan Spence and some great cakes and moose biscuits from Sam Cullen - thanks to all the Roses who contributed to the Fuddle.

High Spirits Choir in some lovely Christmas jumpers then performed for us some festive songs including a special Buns & Roses version of the Twelve Days of Christmas.

Official Buns & Roses Magician Magic Al then made his way around the room and showed off some of his awesome magic tricks.  He even did some mind reading tricks - very spooky!  Al was also kind enough to draw our raffle which had some amazing prizes such as:

£20 Fazenda Voucher
Tea for Two at York Cocoa House
Bettys Coffee & Tea
Abel & Cole Organic Vegetable Box Voucher
£5 Japan Crafts Voucher  
And an amazing knitted scarecrow!  

Thanks to everyone who kindly donated raffle prizes.

The rest of the evening was a lot of fun chatting, crafting and eating. 

Merry Christmas from Buns & Roses and see you in the new year.
