Christmas Party

The Christmas Social held at St. Anne’s Church Hall on Saturday 10th December proved to be a great success. Over twenty members attended and although the catering was over enthusiastic the food was varied and festive. A different slant on our ‘Pictionery’ quiz with Norfolk village names instead of book titles was really popular. There was plenty of opportunities for members, both old and new, to mingle and get to know one another. Certainly the general agreement was that this was something we should repeat and the Summer Social will be an event to look forward to.

Results of Competition One: A Horror Story

Adjudicator, Joseph Freeman, judging the twelve entries said that the overall quality was very pleasing. He gave a comprehensive critique on each story adding that the authors should not be downhearted by any comments as these were intended to improve the writing.
 General points to remember
1. Presentation is very important. Do not have overly large
    margins. Ensure you do not run out of ink.
2. Clarity of prose; avoid over use of complicated writing
     language. Keep it simple
