90th Christmas Breakfast


At last, after two years of pandemic lockdown, we were able to run the Christmas Breakfast face to face again.

In the last two years we have had to resort to virtual celebrations at home, with everyone cooking their own breakfast.

This year we also celebrated our Centenary (which actually happened last year). The 14th was formed in April 1921, and the breakfasts started about 10 years later.

This year numbers were down on normal, sadly we have lost many old friends over the last couple of years. The strike disruption also put a number of people off travelling.

We had about 40 people sitting down for a full english breakfast cooked by Neale and Rosemary, supported by a small gang of helpers. In fact , in the tradition of the 14th, most of the people attending helped in some way or other -from serving out plates to clearing and washing up.

Thank you to all who attended and helped to keep this 90 year tradition going.
