Past Masters and their guests had a lovely time at the Court Christmas Lunch on Tuesday, 1 December 2015.

The Hall was very festive with crackers and wreaths placed on each table.  the Clerk said grace after which the three-course lunch was much enjoyed and the Master made a great speech thanking everyone who contributed to the event. The choir from Crown Woods Academy sang five songs and even the Stationers had a go at singing the 12 days of Christmas!

The Master also presented everyone with gifts. The boxes received were made  by Veterans of the Wiltshire Barn project and were covered with a section of the page from our book registers which records the registration of Shakespeare's First Folio. This is the most important entry in our Archives! The scroll reproduced the complete page for the entry and pencils were also included in the boxes. Our first christmas event was a great success and we look forward to the Members Christmas Lunch next week!
