We met again on Tuesday 17th December for our monthly evening at Blackwood Comprehensive School. It being the festive season, members brought a variety of buffet type food to celebrate Christmas. We were joined by Society Chair, Fay Parry, and following opening remarks from both Branch Chair, Elizabeth White, and by Fay in which both emphasized the urgent need for volunteers to help the society’s willing horses, the members turned their attention to the buffet table.
We then settled down to a quiz prepared by branch member Graham Charles which occupied much thought and covered history, music and general subjects. It was surprising how many members were able to match the solar planets to Gustaf Holtz’ planet suite. Jupiter, for example, being the Bringer of Jollity.
