Christmas Party 2023

Winchester Rotary certainly knows how to have a good time around the festive season. This year saw members, partners and guests totalling 45 people enjoy the hospitality of the Winchester Hotel & Spa which was very appropriate as little did we know when we booked it in June that it would by now be our regular meeting venue!!

Our guests included Sonia Carver, President of Winchester Inner Wheel, Sam Jones, deputy Vice Chancellor of Winchester University and his wife Becca and Rachel Northover fundraising lead from African Adventures and her boss Dan Mew.

Appropriately once again this year we ran a raffle for a bottle of Tattinger the profits from which at £250 provided a Christmas Meal for 500 children at a school in Ghana, a helpful reminder that others do not have access to the food we do.

After a glass of bubbly for all our guests a traditional Christmas Meal ( other options available!) washed down by generous pourings of wine was enjoyed by all, topped off with of course mince pies with the coffee!!

Then followed an hour or more of dancing to the disco ably provided by resident DJ Chris Noon. Our members and guests certainly showed they still had it in them as they danced the night away to music from ’60s, ’70s and ’80s!!

It seems from the atmosphere on the evening and comments subsequently received that everyone enjoyed themselves and no doubt someone will come forward next year to organise another such event!!
