We decided to go to Warners, Sinah Warren, Hayling Island for four nights over the Christmas period. There was something to do (if you wanted it) all day every day, including archery, bowls, swimming (indoor), bingo, dancing, bell-ringing, carol-singing along with nightly entertainment including tributes to "The Rat Pack" and "Tom Jones". Food and service were excellent (unfortunately this means a strict diet for the New Year) and being Christmas, we had visits by Mary and Joseph with two donkeys and Santa Clause in a veteran car, along with artifical snow. We thoroughly enjoyed the experience although must admit we were probably the youngest couple there and had to dodge zimmer frames and mobility scooters wherever we went.
On our departure, we travelled along the coast to Brighton to stay with our son and his wife, to celebrate their summer wedding with an evening of disco music, and meeting up with their friends and newly-acquired family members.
It was lovely to come home after such a busy week and sleep in our own bed, but entertaining hasn't finished, with family joining us for New Year.
