Regional Dinner Chichester 19th September 2012



A new venue for this years regional Dinner, Chichester Park Hotel, in Chichester and we were pleased to welcome members some travelling over 100 miles to be there others included a group from Northwest Kent, Berkshire, Dorset and Southampton, including our special guests Barry North and David and Amanda Leeks.

The dinner was very well supported, with 99 people in attendants. The Worthing branch took a few fund raising stalls with included Barbara’s cards and crafts, all hand made by members of the Worthing branch and of course a super raffle.

The meal was a prawn cocktail starter followed by Roast Lambs with all the trimmings and again during the meal we all had a super table quiz set by Barbara and won by Martin Tidy. The sweet was profiteroles with chocolate sauce, Hmm lovely, followed by a nice cup of coffee.

Afternoon entertainment was courtesy of the Arun Sounds Ladies Barber shop harmony chorus who gave up their time to perform for us and sung a few well known tunes from the stage shows and were very well received indeed. 

Bob Stephens gave a short welcome speech that was followed by David Leeks – Chairman of Berkshire Branch “My Year as Mayor of Basingstoke” and then Barry North reminded us of some of the history of the Fellowship.

Terry & Gaynor again exceeded their expectations by taking £301,00 on the raffle, brilliant. We all departed happy in the knowledge that we had avoided the traffic from the Goodwood Revival being held just up the road.
