There was singing and laughter when the ladies of Lowton WI got together for their Christmas celebration last week.
This year the Christmas party felt extra special – as all festive celebrations do following life under COVID restrictions!
Lynn Halliwell, from Lowton WI, said: “There was a lot of excitement and anticipation as to what to expect but true to form our WI had a fabulous evening.”
The group enjoyed a hot pot supper, followed by games and a raffle – all with COVID safe measures in place. Long-standing members received certificates to mark 10 years of membership. Margaret Thornton had even reached the 20 year milestone! And in those decades the ladies have been a big part of the fundraising and community work of the group – so, congratulations and thank yous were in order!
Lynn added: “Bringing the evening to a close our choir sang Christmas carols,although just a little bit rusty as we hadn’t sung together for a couple of years! We did get a fit of the giggles,which in turn had the members laughing and singing along with us.
“Sadly,due to COVID Santa couldn’t visit this year but nevertheless,we each brought a secret Santa gift to pass on so no-one left empty handed.”
