Seems a long time ago now – but the annual dinner and awards evening at the Simla restaurant proved to be a great night out for all concerned. Thanks to all those who turned up to make the evening such a success. It was lovely to see Pete and June amongst us once again – thanks to June for presenting the trophies and to Pete for agreeing to MC – he proved to be a more than capable user of new technology – interpreting Stav’s notes on the trophy winners which were only available on his tablet! Up to that point, Pete had thought that tablets were something you took twice a day with a glass of water!
Thanks also to George and his staff at the Simla who ensured an efficient and prompt service to all the tables we occupied. The food was truly delicious as well as being plentiful.
