Chinese New Year Celebration

Tuesday, 24th February, 2015

This was a very special day for the members of the International Club.

Eight charming, young, Chinese ladies worked hard to give us the pleasure of celebrating Chinese New Year with them, the year of the Goat. A spring festival which most certainly lightened the dullness of the grey weather outside.

We were given an insight to many traditional customs, provided with red ribbon bracelets, to ensure we would be lucky throughout the new year...   and most impressive of all, was the enormous and varied buffet which was provided for us.   None of us needed to go home for lunch after partaking in this wonderful feast.

The applause was loud, and vocal, when our young friends were presented with flowers, and many thanks, and much appreciation. I am sure that this extraordinary experience will find a very special place in our memories.
