Seasons Greeting Possums!

Christmas came to Whitford ,not with a blanket of snow, but appropriately with sunshine, just like they have in Oz! On entering the hall, which is usually filled with ballet dancers on Saturday, you were met by a forest of fibre optic and synthetic  pine and fir trees. Amongst the  decorated trees was a rather regal Dame Edna Everage tribute (quite a spectacle to be seen ). Instead of tinsel another had tinnies. No baubels were to be seen but Boomerangs and Australian flags.

To keep up with with this British Australian tradition, a Barbie did a roaring trade. Nobody felt twitchy (or even jumpy) after having eaten a Kangaroo burger. Inside the hall the indoor beach Barbie scene demonstrated the phrase ” throw another shrimp on the Barbie ” to  a whole new level. The shrimp ( not freshly caught from the River Axe) made our Langoustines from the UKs water look Crayfish. Although no Lamingtons appeared, the collection of cakes produced by the ladies matched any “Bake-Off”. The two days  were  a great success and approximately £1500 was raised towards new chairs for the village hall. Our thanks to everyone who helped make this such a success.
