In mid December 2017 the Senior Citizens of Burghwallis were treated to a very successful annual Christmas lunch provided by the parish council Poor’s Field Funds.
It was unfortunate this year that the numbers were a little depleated due to illness, hospital appointments and bereavements. Some even managed to be overseas which you can imagine was regarded as pretty lame excuse. Just me then.
The Burghwallis pub team did a sterling job providing excellent Christmas Fayre. The very enjoyable lunch was complimented by an entertainer who played the key board and incorporated a musical quiz fitting for our era although brains were tested to the limits by some of the questions. Not a thing on Ed Sheridan, Taylor Swift, Bruno Mars or Ariana Grande, which was a tad unfair on those of us young at heart.
Father Richard who was not able to enjoy his turkey with us due to a pressing engagement, apparently nothing to do with ironing his surplice, but he did agree to call in to say grace.
It is hoped next year that those who missed the occasion will be fighting fit and able to enjoy the day.
