Christmas Lecture and Groups’ Video

Friday December 8th, 2023

Esteemed local historian and the long time group leader for the popular History Group Maureen Newton presented a talk about Hucknall born composer and musician, Eric Coates

Maureen concentrated on his early years in Hucknall and then progressed to how he kept up his links to the town and family through frequent visits in later years.

During the interval we enjoyed drinks , mince pies and sausage rolls organised by Christine and John Berrill and Lynn and Peter Baker.

After the interval we were entertained by a video montage with a lively musical soundtrack carefully put together by Christine Vincent which featured many of our Interest Groups.

The finale was songs by the cycling group ‘Daisy Daisy’ starring David Riley and Mary Martin with  backing singing by group members.

They were  followed by  ‘The 12 Days of Christmas’ /’Les Douze Jours de Noel’

sung  in French by the ‘Fun With Languages’ group.

The Social Sub Committee wishes to thank everyone who contributed to our Christmas events.
