PBGS Christmas Dinner at The Fox

Last night PBGS descended on the Fox in Pirton for our annual Christmas Dinner. We all had a great time as you can see, especially with the party tooters! Top tooter prize goes to Tim with his imaginative use of two green ones to recreate Shrek. Margaret led everyone in their own version of The Twelve Days of Christmas where the Drummers Drumming got into a priority dispute with the Pipers Piping, and we also wished everyone a 'Merry Christmas' (very loudly) to herald in the Figgy Pudding.

Many thanks to Paul for organising it, and to The Fox for putting up with us and feeding us extremely well. To those PBGS'ers who couldn't make it, we missed you, wish you a very Merry Christmas and we'll see you on Tuesday 3rd for music revision with Margaret (perhaps we should include the 12 Days of Christmas ;-).
