8 members of the Aldridge Club and their partners joined District 1210 Governor Lynne Marshall in Llandudno for the annual district conference, 499 Rotarians and guests enjoyed dancing to Rang-A-Tang at the Viva Espana Fancy Dress Evening.
A morning of inspirational speakers included Rob & Paul Forkan 'Gandys Orphans for Orphans', David Maidment 'The Railway Children' and Norman Croucher 'A Man and his Mountain'. Edwina Currie gave us some tips through her talk 'Lessons Learned... from a lifetime in politics'.
Aldridge members enjoyed a pub lunch at the local Weatherspoons before setting off up the Great Orme. At the evening Gala Dinner we enjoyed a magnificent dinner followed by entertainment from Co Stars.
Sunday's round of speakers were just as interesting ending another successful conference.
An enjoyable weekend was had by all.
