As the doors opened at 2.30 to our second New Year's Eve party the heaven's opened too but the deluge didn't deter the guests. Around 40 people joined the party and for the first 45 minutes there was a buzz of happy chatter and discussion over the various quiz sheets and puzzles on the tables. Then it was teatime — plenty of tea, of course, accompanied by sandwiches, scones and a variety of cakes. The time flew and it was soon time for Philip's New Year address with a couple of hymns, followed by a rendition of Auld Lang Syne to round off the afternoon. It was a very enjoyable way to see the old year out, to meet friends and to welcome the new year.
