Are you coming to the Christmas Gathering  
If 'Yes' are you bringing a guest?  
If 'Yes' what dish will you be bringing?  
If you can't come, please let us know why  

Following the success of last year’s Christmas Social event, we are planning a similar feast this year. The themed book exhibition is ‘Winter’. NO rules, NO prizes, just bring your entries along on the day. Partners welcome.

Thursday 13th December - 11:30 am till 2:30 pm

Ruishton Village Hall, Cheats Road, Ruishton, TA3 5JD 

(Off Junction 25 of M5 near Taunton)


Cost: Donation (suggested £5) on the day to cover drinks & hall hire etc.

EAT: - Buffet Lunch: - Please bring a dish to share (sweet or savoury).

DRINK: - Mulled wine, white wine, mulled non alcoholic punch, & other soft drinks, tea and coffee.

BE MERRY: - Catch up on all the news with members you haven’t seen for a while. Take the opportunity to get to know people you haven’t really chatted to before.

Have a go at the Christmas Challenges.

Vote for the ‘People’s Choice Award’ for your favourite ‘Winter’ themed book. Get a token when you arrive and drop it in the box next to your favourite

Take home a present! Please bring along a small item for Santa’s Secret Sack (wrapped please!). Preferably bookbinding related. You don’t need to buy anything just raid your tool box/bindery. It could be anything from scalpel blades to a book back, leather scraps, paper off cuts, an old book that needs recovering. (sorry but if you don’t bring anything, you don’t get to play this game!)

Shop till you drop at the ‘Stuff for Sale’ table. Keith Bottomley will bring along his collection of items the society has for sale. If you have any items you want to sell, please bring them along, clearly labeled with price and who to give the money to.
