Thank You

As always I thank all those people who helped get the room and the kit set up and all those people who clear the room so efficiently at the end of the evening.

A special thank you must go to the "Catering Team" and all the food providers on the evening. From some of the comments afterwards this was considered hospitality at its best and I believe some visitors managed to sneak a second piece of cake without being apprehended. Well done to Yvonne Trim, Sue Veal and all those involved. Also thanks to Joyce Beale who worked hard to sell raffle tickets - especially as i won a box of chocolates.
