With Christmas just around the corner, I felt I needed to be organised this year so I headed to sunny Carlton-in-Cleveland where I heard that Carlton Methodist Church were holding their annual Christmas Coffee morning on Saturday 26th November. The day was frosty but I received a warm welcome inside. The back hall was a hive of activity with a cake stall, gift stalls, and a game where you could win sweets as prizes. There was also a chance to see Father Christmas.

I felt tired just looking at it all so I headed for a cup of tea and biscuit to get my strength back. Feeling refreshed and revived, I wandered around and chatted to some of the stall holders. I was told that this coffee morning has been an annual event for the past forty years or more.

It certainly seemed to be a popular event and so friendly; I even got a bear hug! Oscar was the bear in the game 'Guess the birthday of the bear'. I had a go although I am not very good at guessing anybody's age let alone their birthday. I told Oscar I had to go as I wanted to visit Great Ayton's Holly Fair but I have a ticket for the New Yorker's Christmas Concert on 3rd December so I'll be back in Carlton very soon.
