SouthsideSpeakersXmas14Twenty-five members from Southside Speakers joined together for a Christmas night out on Thursday 11th December at the Waverley Tearooms in Shawlands, Glasgow (luckily for us these Tearooms have a bar!).

A wonderful night of good food and company was arranged by Lesley Renton who was the informal Toastmaster of the Evening, and she ensured that a good time was had by all.

We enjoyed a lovely 3-course meal, a Toast from Conor Hunter, various seasonal Table Topics (with prizes!) and an entertaining After Dinner Speech by George Hunter.

Club President, Will Feek, thanked Lesley for arranging the evening and also all the members who attended. He also thanked the Club Committee for supporting the club and members.

It was lovely to have some time to relax and chat with fellow members and to welcome some of our most recent members and also some members whom we have not seen for some time (welcome back Myfanwy and Duncan).

We look forward to a happy and successful New Year for Southside Speakers – Happy Christmas to All.
