Accrington Observer - - FESTIVE PICTURE SPECIAL -

THE chair­man be­gan by wel­com­ing ev­ery­one.

He gave his yearly re­port and thanked all who had helped make it an­other suc­cess­ful one.

The trea­surer gave his re­port next and the club de­cided that the sub­scrip­tions would stay the same for 2019.

The elec­tion of of­fi­cers was next with the fol­low­ing be­ing re­turned to of­fice: Gavin Hart­ley as chair­man, Pauline Smith as sec­re­tary, John Davies as trea­surer and Ray­mond Gar­ratt as events co­or­di­na­tor.

The evening con­tin­ued with our Christ­mas raf­fle.

Con­grat­u­la­tions to all the lucky win­ners.

Thanks also to Rod McFar­lane for his do­na­tion of bon­sai items which we added to the raf­fle prizes.

We then stopped to have our Christ­mas party sup­per of pie and peas, mince tart and bis­cuits fol­lowed by a piece of very spe­cial Christ­mas cake made and dec­o­rated with the club name by Diane Kennedy.

Our pop­u­lar Christ­mas quiz was next, many thanks to Ray Could­well for com­pil­ing it.

Our now reg­u­lar bon­sai auc­tion was next with a good num­ber of trees chang­ing hands. The evening came to an end with the chair­man wish­ing ev­ery­one a happy Christ­mas and New Year.

Our next meet­ing is on Tues­day, Jan­uary 8 at Hip­pings Vale Com­mu­nity Cen­tre, Oswaldtwistle. We start at 7.30pm.

Start the year right by join­ing a pop­u­lar and friendly bon­sai club.
