Kibworth Rambling Group held this annual gathering at the Kibworth Golf Club, where some 70 walking and social members got together to celebrate Christmas 2015.
The day started with a short 6 mile walk across the beautiful, but wet, South Leicestershire countryside that surround this spendid Golf Club. Planned and led by the dependable and trusty Pete and Carole Craig, a relatively small group of 8 donned their boots and trudged the fields and canal paths. The golf club kindly allowed the walkers to use their changing room facilities so that they could refresh and put on their party finery - Pete looked particularly dashing I thought.
Fresh air and exercise did its job in delivering a healthy appetite ready for the wholesome meal back at the club. And a healthy appetite was what was needed! Kibworth Golf Club put on a sumptious and satisfying Christmas spread. A choice of menu across the three courses plus oodles of coffee and mince pies to round of the meal.
Our Chair, Derek Hughes, closed the event with a short speech which thanked Sue Tart, Committee Member, for her hard work in planning and implementing the event. Well done Sue! The KRG raffle completed and the Golf Club staff thanked for serving us so well, members bid farewell to each other and headed home. Happy Christmas and a rambling good 2016 one and all!
