New Year's Lunch

As usual, we celebrated our new year, 2015, in January. And this year we really did it with great pizazz! Nearly 80 of our members went to lunch on the 28th of January at the Walpole Bay Hotel in Margate. We filled two coaches and the air was very festive. We chose our menu a couple of months earlier, so once we sat down at the tables, the service was swift and efficient! Here are a few pictures from our lunch:
This picture shows some of the lovely menu selections.

Lots of chatting while we ate, but we still managed to eat a full plate!


The lunch menu included starters, main course, and desserts. Each course was served so efficiently and was as delicious as the last.
How lovely is this cheesecake?! It tasted as good as it looks, too!
And judging from the comments overheard on the coaches on the way home, everyone was very pleased overall. Aside from the meal, of course, it was a good opportunity to catch up on the news of our friends.

For anyone who is thinking of joining us, we have plenty more good times planned for 2015. New members are always most welcome to join us. Just come along at 2pm on the second Wednesday of each month. We meet at All Saints Hall on Church Street in Whitstable.
