Once again, we welcomed friendly familiar faces from local parishes who joined us at our Annual Christmas Whist Drive on November 29th 2012. A fun evening was had by all and there were lots of prizes to be won. Thank you to those parishioners who donated whist and raffle prizes, and especially to Rev Cecily West who made the wonderful Christmas cake, which was the main attraction in the raffle. A big thank you to Glynis McConnell and Jane Moore for organising supper, and to those ladies of the parish who made cakes, to the Rector and Alan Rhodes for their support on the night and a special thanks to Bernard, our Sexton, whose help, especially in preparing the hall, is invaluable. First prize of a €30 M&S voucher was won by Neville Allison from all Saints’, Blackrock and the Christmas cake was won by Amy Hourie from Taney.
