There was a great atmosphere at the Wickhambrook pensioners’ Christmas lunch on Wednesday. It made a merry start to the festive season … but do please note I was there as a guest. An under-age guest at that!

It was a really lovely event, a delicious meal, great entertainment with music and the most brilliant magician. It was all masterminded by the amazing Jack Couzens.

Thank you to Jack, the carnival committee, the team from The Greyhound, and all at the MSC  who made the day such a wonderful celebration.

It was a great privilege to be invited. I was only sorry that I could’s stay all afternoon but instead had to nip off to Bury St Edmunds  for a meeting with highways.
