Our final lunch of the year was a great success with 42 of us enjoying a delicious curry prepared by Davina’s dedicated band of helpers. Lots of books for sale, a bring and buy, raffle and well stocked bar ensured everyone kept busy and thoroughly enjoyed themselves. The photos speak for themselves!

Northern Lunch Report

We had a very sociable lunch at the Tempest Arms in Elslack, Skipton, Yorkshire on the 26th September. So sociable that our photographer forgot to take any photos! Twenty people attended, despite the fuel crisis, and we were served a very delicious curry by the hotel. There was an abundance of raffle prizes and a generous amount was raised for our Benevolent Fund. Many thanks to Jenni for organising and to all those who came.

Guildford Lunch Photos

A most convivial London Lunch

Our Post-Lockdown London lunch was well attended and thoroughly enjoyed by members, old and new, and their guests. The Victory Services Club provided a delicious curry lunch, with sticky chocolate brownies to follow. After so long without the opportunity to catch up there was a warm atmosphere with the usual non-stop chatter, as evidenced by the photos below.
