Social event - HPIC Christmas Party 22/12/21

Oh! What a night! Proceeding went on ‘til late, fighting broke out and the

police were called and several arrests made but the HPIC Christmas was a

much more sober event and all the more enjoyable for that.

A great deal of thanks goes to Sue Gibson who planned the event. It was

great fun. About twenty people enjoyed the celebration of Mikey Hey win

this year’s Challenge Trophy; the results are shown below, a splendid

buffet offering a wide range of hot and cold food for all tastes including

some magnificent deserts; lemon marang pie, pavlova and a chocolate

log. Sue also did us proud with a challenging quiz some of the questions

within which are shown below just in case members would like to

undertake the challenge over the festive break. Answers will be

forthcoming when meetings resume in 2022.
