The annual extravaganza of the Annual Dinner saw a good range of old and new members in attendance once again at Merchants in Warwick. It was particularly good to see the fruit of the club’s youth policy enjoying themselves, and this we also welcomed Nick Lamb, Snitterfield ground supremo to the party.
As the venue was fully packed this year, there was sadly no opportunity to repeat last year’s multimedia extravaganza. Nevertheless, the delicious meal was interspersed with the usual selection of weird and wonderful prizes and competitions, and the Chairman’s Speech in praise of the returning Peter Fisher (off the telly).
Congratulations to Liz Griffin who won the Irish Bingo and Vicki Henderson for correctly predicting the length of Sandy’s piece.
