IN JOLLY GOOD COMPANY

Dear Friends 
 
In Jolly Good Company saw out 2022 with a splendid Christmas Jolly Day at the Village Hall. The Friendly Food Club prepared an immense and delicious Christmas Feast and we enjoyed singing along with Sue Old’s Christmas Songs and even created and acted in our own hilarious Instant Panto. Carol Thorne and Phyliss Chandler had their “Knitting Angels stall’ jam packed with handmade festive goodies.
 
In 2023, we have so much to look forward to. Including visits from our favourite musicians, artists and craftspeople. Plus Joyful Jams Dance Company, Suzanne Greenwood Yoga and a puppet company who want to show us the piece they are developing with our help.
 
Our first Jolly Day in WSG will be on 16th January. Our friendly team will always do our best to welcome you. Why not come along for an excellent lunch and join in with the fun and laughter?
 
With best wishes for a great year ahead.
 
Sarah and the Jolly Crew
