Our Vice-President Our Vice-President also seemed to be in good shape - and there was rather less of his shape than in the recent past.  Good for you, John.  Here he is, in attendance at the washing up station and probably contemplating the long drive back to Yorkshire. 
We were very grateful to Chris Hazlewood and Terry Fullwood who, in the absence of Henry Metzger on holiday, showed films, played background music and made a video of the day, quietly and unobtrusively doing a great job. Chris Hazlewood and Terry Fullwood Among those attending were Mr. and Mrs. W. King.  Here they are at the event and behind them, there they are in a photo of their wedding day, on part of Sandra's display of local weddings.
