It has been another busy week here in Castle Coop…
Despite being worn out after all the services he has given to celebrate Christmas, Trev the Rev most hospitably invited all the congregation to attend an ‘Open House’ party to celebrate the year’s end.. His parishioners in Castle Coop were absolutely delighted to attend and a marvellous time was had by all.
Liberty Hen was annoyed to report that she’s been having problems with her wardrobe.
Apparently she initially tried taking a determined approach to the problem …
but was finally forced to accept defeat … & to reach for the Post-Christmas Horrors:
The dreaded Trousers With The Elasticated Waistband.
Postcards landed on the doormats of several houses in Castle Coop sent by Lady Egality and Sir Plym, corresponding from overseas in Kenya. Kindly remembering their many friends and neighbours in Castle Coop, they report that the weather is beautifully hot in Kenya and they are greatly enjoying life on the beach.
Brown Owl, having led the Brownies on a Litter-Clearance expedition after lunch, has sent off for several Brownie ‘Good Citizen’ badges which she plans to award in early 2016.
New Year’s Eve
The Village Hall Committee hosted a Party to welcome in the New Year:
& speaking on behalf of the Village Hall Committee, Sir Burford Brown was delighted to confirm that the evening was a great success. After a delicious fish pie cooked by Lady Sebright and Lady Lohmann Brown, Auld Lang Syne was sung with great gusto as was a version of ‘500 miles’ by The Proclaimers. Several villagers danced until the small hours.
New Year’s Day:
Castle Coopians unanimously agreed to keep a low profile on the morning of New Year’s Day. It is suspected that the energetic and joyful celebrations on New Year’s Eve, were responsible for the deserted street scene.
After spending a quiet morning, many villagers elected to spend a quiet afternoon which they followed up by an early night.
The Editorial Team at The Awesome Hen would like to wish you all a very Happy New Year!
The Awesome Hen was sorry to hear that Liberty Hen needed several cups of calming tea after a misadventure which occurred when she decided to take down the Christmas decorations which she and The Agent had been enjoying during the festive season:
Apparently, Lady Liberty was so pleased that she’d actually managed to steel herself to do the dreaded deed…
she made a fundamental error,
by failing to realise that she’d need a periscope.
until it was too late.
Next time Liberty Hen will rope herself to the door.
Yours on behalf of our crack Editorial Team here at The Awesome Hen,
