We enjoyed an excellent Christmas Dinner & Dance on Tuesday 4th December at the Mount Avenue Banqueting Suite which was beautifully decorated for the Christmas Season with a festively decorated tree to welcome us in the lobby and many more sparkling ornaments throughout the hall.
Firstly, we mingled over complimentary glasses of wine which was an excellent way to kick off our evening. We were then seated at our allocated tables to be warmly welcomed by Stephen Hill who was standing in for our President, Tom Steeds. Jane Oliver, our Secretary, then gave the thanksgiving grace for the wonderful wine, fabulous food and extremely enjoyable company. The waiting staff expertly provided our choice of courses using silver service followed by tea, coffee and mouth-watering mints.
The raffle at the end of the evening ensured an even spread of prizes by table, unlike the one held at our Summer Party, although of course this was again fairly expedited.
Many of us then took to the floor to enjoy the excellent mix of music provided by our DJ whilst others took the opportunity to table-hop and catch up with friends, old and new.
The evening provided a superb opportunity to socialise with fellow members and guests in a very relaxed albeit warm environment.
