Several members and partners – twenty two – joined in a convivial lunch starting with everyone enjoying drinks and nibbles with Richard and Mary.
Then we split into groups for main courses with Sam and Shanthy; Venkatesh and Priya; and Mike and Michelle.
Rounded off by dessert and cheese with John and Sandra; Peter and Angela; and Geoff and Jean.
Relaxing and happy time – smoothly organised as always by Geoff and Jean. And the high quality of catering at all venues was praised.
