‘Going crackers at Christmas…’

The opening act on the bill was the St Briavels People’s Choir and boy did they get a good turn out. The front door opened to a long line of people who made their way into the hall. And they kept on coming in! Even when the hall was full up with just enough of a gap to move through people were still coming in. At one point it felt like people were walking through going all the way round to the front door and walking in again! This was confirmed by a few visitors who had enjoyed it so much they did exactly that. What with ‘blue shoe’ bins constantly overflowing, wheelchair doors needing to be opened and our lovely house to keep an eye on, the time did go quickly. When the caffeine and adrenalin ran out we were running on pure Christmas spirit. After 1414 visitors, the doors finally closed around 3.20pm. It was a hectic day that was held together impeccably by the talents and general awesomeness of Katy who was a star during the whole weekend. ( No points for guessing who I might be asking for a job reference from! ) All that remained was to attempt a clean up so that no-one had thought there was a break-in or a bomb had gone off, when Monday morning came around.
And rest………..
