The Christmas Social was held at the Swan Inn at Ringland and forty-two guests turned up dressed in their festive finery. In addition to the meal there was a table quiz coupled with some audio questions.
From the hubbub and general merriment, everyone appeared to enjoy themselves. After a fiercely fought competition the team of Richard & Beryl Norris, Chris King, Alan Fordham, Steph Plaster, David Gibbons, Ann Walker and Jacky Pett were declared the overall winners.
We also held two inaugural awards; the first was for the best photograph of a bird taken in the Wensum Valley in 2019, which was a Buzzard taken at Sparham by Hilary Gostling. The second award was for the best bird sighting in the Wensum Valley, which was a Turtle Dove sighted by Steve Connor.
The Swan was beautifully decorated and provided Xmas Fayre, which was served by their cheerful and efficient staff.
