A chorus of Jingle Bells rang through the Tin Roof Diner as Santa dropped into the the Monday Social Club’s Christmas party.

He brought a sack filled with gifts for all, and even had one for the Courier’s reporter.

The club members gathered at the diner on Monday and enjoyed a meal, as well as a raffle, and entertainment from Alex MacKinnon on accordion, Ann Leith, who sang and danced, and Lorna Hume, who sang Christmas carols.

Hugh Gilbert, the diner’s proprietor, and his staff opened up on one of their days off for the club’s party, and organiser Cathy Duncan said: ‘I can’t thank them enough for coming in specially for us and giving us the run of the place.’
