Christmas will soon be with us. I expect that Fordingbridge will be switching on the Christmas Lights but there will be no formal switch on or late shopping event, Jolly Santa Clause will not be arriving in the High Street as usual. It’s hard to be jolly when you have to work at Christmas. Christmas crackers will be evident with all the old, corny jokes: What did Santa call the reindeer with a broken leg? Dinner! Why is Christmas just like a day at the office? Because you do all the work and the fat guy in the suit gets all the credit! The Fordingbridge Camera Club also has its share of old, corny jokers who are always happy and jolly.
We usually meet at Avonway Community Centre at 7.30pm most Wednesdays of the season. Our website, www.fordingbridgecameraclub.org.uk contains our programme of talks by visiting top photographers but, for the see able future, we have to work through Zoom.
I love to give homemade gifts, which of my kids do you want? I got a herbal belt last Christmas – a complete waist of thyme.
Some new Christmas cracker jokes have just arrived. They are even worse than usual - What did Adam say on 24 December? It’s Christmas, Eve! What did Santa’s wife say during a thunderstorm? “Come and look at the rain, dear.”
Whatever the future brings for us, the age old message from Fordingbridge Camera Club is – Happy Christmas to one and all!
