WOS Scotland Branch Christmas Party

The West of Scotland branch held its Christmas party on Friday 1st December at the Ardencaple Hotel, Helensburgh.

The evening attended by 50 branch members, their wives and partners, families and friends was a huge success.

The evening started with a glass of welcoming fizz and assorted beers. It was followed by a three course meal and a plentiful supply of both red and white wine.

Robert ‘Nicko’ Nicholls provided a festive quiz with prizes of three wonderful Christmas hampers.

We held two raffles on the evening, the first was made possible by the wonderful gifts that the branch members supplied.

Our thanks and appreciation also goes to the following business, who generously supplied gifts for our second raffle.

Our Branch President Jim McMaster took the opportunity to call ‘splice the main brace’ and copious amounts of rum were drunk!

Thanks to Nicko, Mac MacDonald, and Nicki Knox for making the evening a huge success.

It was a fantastic evening and an excellent way to start the festive season.

I would like to take this opportunity the wish all branches of the Submariners Association a very Merry Christmas and a prosperous New Year.
