Father Christmas visits Smithfield CWA 1954

SURPRISE VISIT TO SMITHFIELD C.W.A.

Father Christmas paid a surprise visit to the Smithfield C.W.A. Xmas party — and from a small tree produced a gift for every member.

Guests included the Divisional President (Mrs. Sobels') who briefly mentioned the State objective for the coming year.

Handicraft members displayed a splendid variety of articles they had made.

All contributed toys and books, with a £5/5/- donation, to forward to the Children's
Hospital.

Mrs. Harvey Kelly delighted with an account of the Royal Show at Windsor.

Arrangements were completed for the visit to Dawes Road Repatriation Hospital at  Xmas.

Afternoon tea, including strawberries and ice cream, were another pleasant part of proceedings which had been arranged by the Social Committee.

The branch is now in recess until March.
