What a lovely festive atmosphere greeted us at the Horse and Farrier in Threlkeld when we arrived for our Christmas lunch. It was a return visit, as we were all so impressed last year that we had very little discussion about where to go this time, This traditional Lakeland inn had been beautifully decorated, as you will see from the pictures.
The food was delicious, too, with a varied menu, and very good service.
We altered the proceedings a little this year; instead of each making a gift to exchange, we made a card instead, and each received one of those. Lovely they were, too! The aim is to keep them all safe until our exhibition in July, and have them on show, then.I didn't photograph them; they'll have their first showing at the Moot Hall.
Our lunch was a lovely, relaxed and comfortable occasion, though we were missing some of of our members through illness.
Happy Christmas, everyone!
