Captain's Announcements

Saturday saw the Annual Children's Christmas Party which I attended in my usual going out gear. It was amazing when I entered the restaurant how the children reacted, they really seemed to think I was the real Father Christmas. It was an event I thoroughly enjoyed.Sunday Ray Ripsher organised the Turkey Trot, not as well supported as I'd hoped but ...
