Christmas Lunch at The Kings Oak
The Kings Room, beautifully adorned with festive lights for Christmas, came alive on Sunday 4 December with the smooth voice of singer, Irie J, the sound of happy feet on the dancefloor, laughter from our guests and much much more. That was the day, we, The Lady Taverners Essex Region, held our “Christmas Lunch with Entertainment” event at The Kings Oak Hotel. Always well-supported, we had 116 attending – they were served a delicious 3 course dinner at 1pm with a half bottle of wine per person, followed by Cheese and Biscuits , with Port, tea or coffee at 5 pm to round off the evening. Irie was marvellous throughout even going so far as to wander round tables serenading various ladies – this drew much amusement from our merry guests, male and female alike. Other attractions consisted of our Lucky Dip and Raffle that raised £365 and £1040 respectively. Additionally, the auction of a collage, a Collector’s item, autographed by Sir Steve Redgrave and donated by Heather and Roger, raised a further £170. Once again, the success of this event could not have been achieved without the backing and loyal support from our members and friends, and we wish therefore to express our thanks to Rita and Peter for their help and organising the Lucky Dip; Kathy for wrapping up the many gifts; Richard, Barbara and Jenni for doing it on the day; all those who donated items for it and for the raffle; Heather and Roger for sponsoring the carols and donating the collage for the auction; Glen for taking all the photographs during the event; singer Irie J for entertaining us; all our loyal supporters ; the staff of The Kings Oak for their diligence to ensure everything went smoothly on the day; the Essex Lady Taverners Committee for their help and anyone else who contributed in some way. Roll on the next one.
