Nearly there

Its been a busy run up to Christmas with a couple of parties and some meetings.
On Monday Keith & Sue went to the Callowbrook Day Centre for their Christmas lunch and singalong. Father Nick from Longbridge Methodist Church was the turn and very good he is too, He does an incredible Elvis show. Afterwards Sue went to Deelands Hall for the Cock Hill Children's Party. Very well attended and a good time had by all. Keith was off to the Council House for a meeting.
Ken was battling his way up to Scotland to pick up his Mother in order to bring her back for a Christmas break. Due to the snowfalls he had to dig his car out in order to get back.
On Wednesday Sue was at Licencing where one of the applications was for an off-licence for a shop just around the corner from us in Nuthurst, we see trouble ahead.
Keith was at the Co-Ordinating Committee to hear a Call-In by the Labour Group on the new Central Library. We say the Labour Group but the suspicion is that this had more to do with Trinity Mirror Newspapers in the form of our old friend Pale Dale of the Birmingham Post, a local weekly, than the Labour Group. Keith had to declare an interest as a member of the board of the Sir Barry Jackson Trust which owns the Rep and was unable to vote. The vote was tied and the Chairman voted against the Call-in and it was lost. Hopefully now the presents are all bought, if not yet wrapped, and we are signing off for a few days. Next week we will be finishing off our Christmas Cards, we still have some to do, that's why they say "Season's Greetings.
May we take this opportunity to wish you all a very merry Christmas and a happy and peaceful New Year.
