Choir meal

This evening, the Choir had their traditional "Fish & Chip Supper" with Masterfry providing some jolly good food. There was also a comprehensive sweet trolley provided by the ladies.

It is a tradition on these occasions for Patrick to give a speech of thanks after dinner, followed by the telling of some jokes as a good example to others who are then invited to join in. Joseph had a good line in blonde jokes which seem to have replaced Irish jokes for the time being.

Dolores is wondering what on earth Patrick is going to say next!

Two of our younger members

Denis always on hand with quiet wisdom
