This morning the horticultural society’s Christmas party was held in the trading shed. There was less space than usual as we had taken delivery of the big once a year order for compost, etc. a couple of weeks ago rather than in the New Year to save on the VAT increase.
The snow didn’t deter a good crowd from turning up to enjoy a couple of hours of chat, laughs, food, drink and a raffle. I actually won a prize, a £5 Sainbury’s gift card and a stainless steel wooden handled garden knife, both of which will be put to good use.
A few of us will be back there again tomorrow morning to do the annual stock take, which thankfully doesn’t take long, then we close up until early in the New Year.
