December's General meeting was a very special event, with lots of happy members! Why, you may ask? Well the historic location: Windsor's Guildhall featured - where Prince Charles and Camilla, as well as Elton John and David Furnish, tied the knot. Another reason - our featured entertainment were none other than The Queen's Six - an all male acapella ensemble of the Queen's personal choral singers who all reside in special quarters inside the grounds of Windsor Castle with their families. This highly presigious group sing eight services a week at St.
We enjoyed champaigne and chat to start and then were ushered into the dining room for a full traditional English Christmas turkey lunch with all the trimmings.
But before we could tuck in, David Beckham paid us a visit. Well, it wasn't Him of course, but someone who has made a career out of looking like him (Andy Harmer). He refused to remove his shirt to show us his tattoos. He told me that he didn't have any :( and that they got painted on when shirt-removing was required.
Our vendors’ll be nestled all snug in their booths,
In hopes that our AWBS friends will come through.
To shop for their prezzies, but not only that,
‘Cause Santa is there, and not taking a nap!
He’s waiting for kids who want pictures with him,
You’ll also meet Else, yes, she from Frozen!!
But wait, there are Elves who your faces will paint,
So stay, sis, cause Mom’s gone off shopping – the Saint!
Or is that Mom stopping to chat with her friend?
And hey, where is Dad? Has he wandered again?
We hope those who made it to our Fayre had a great day. There were tables everywhere overflowing with wonderful things to browse and buy.
