Banoffee Pie on the menu, you know your in for a treat or
The annual dinner was held at the Beach hotel in Worthing again
this year, on a very windy day indeed, we got blown into the lobby of the hotel where the same
old maitre'd met us and guided us to our seats.
Seventy nine brave and fearless soles turned out in the windy weather, including a group of thirteen
members from the Southampton branch who were very welcome, and this year our special guest
was Aidan Linton-Smith, from inner London branch, who is our
national treasurer, and south of England representative.
Terry and Gaynor sold raffle tickets for a table full of super prizes donated by members, and again were very successful, looks like they may have a full time job there, keep up the good work.
During the meal, we all had a chance at this years quiz
based on the Para Olympics put together by Barbara, in her
spare time, and this year we had three winners all getting
eighteen points each, hmm, we only got eleven.
The meal over Bob Stephens introduced our national treasurer
Aidan Linton-Smith who gave a very interesting after dinner talk for about 10 minutes, highly praising the Worthing
website for its clarity, ease of use, interesting content,
and always being up to date, so he went straight to the top of my
Christmas list, he also presented the Worthing branch with a much worked for
“Branch/Group of the year” award.
Barbara Stephens accepted the award on behalf of us all, and will pass the trophy around
to members so that they can each enjoy it for a few weeks.
Below are a few super pictures of us all.
