To the Ladies of the Club


It has been our habit to celebrate ‘Little Christmas’ until knocked of course last year by the pandemic. While it is difficult to plan with any certainty these days as things currently stand it is possible for us to meet again for lunch on 6th January and so I am asking you to let me know if you would like to be part of that celebration.

We will gather at the Walnut Tree in Runcton at 12.30 on Thursday 6th January (this will be confirmed) and as a precaution I will ask that everyone joining us takes a lateral flow test beforehand.

For our newer members, Little or Women’s Christmas , Nollaig na mBan in Celtic, is celebrated on Epiphany and is marked by women meeting together while men (supposedly) undertake the household chores. It was quite wide spread across many parts of the world, known as Nollaig Bheag in Scottish Gaelic for instance and recorded also in Lancashire. It remains strong in some parts, especially Kerry and Cork in Ireland as our two lady Irish members tell us.

I appreciate that some not wish to mix socially this year, but if you would like to come along please let me know via by Monday 20th December
