2019 Christmas Lunch

Another very successful Christmas Lunch for the GPHS.

This year’s Christmas lunch had the largest attendance so far, including our oldest member, Don Grammar, aged 93

As usual the food was fantastic and during and after the lunch, there was live music with plenty of audience participation. The surprise was a Moroccan Dancer, who accompanied the live music. Everyone enjoyed her beautiful dancing and a few members were encouraged to join in.

The afternoon ended at 4 o’clock with many members not wanting to leave. Another very successful Christmas Lunch for the GPHS.

Seasons Greetings to all Members and a Happy and Healthy 2020.
