Party time

So the Christmas party was last night. I must say, this do seems to grow every year and last night was no exception. There were over a hundred people there, in effect, everyone who has helped us in any way over the last year had an invite and many of them showed up. Thanks for coming. As ever, the Ship did us proud and looked after us well with a superb buffet.

Sam was behind the bar (along with various ex-pupils of mine which made me think of this newspaper report yesterday in the Times) and at his cheery best.

The girls had all met up at Becky's place before hand to 'glamourize' themselves. It seemed to have worked too!

Everyone looked as if they were having a tremendous time.

Looking through the year book of photos that Becky had arranged it became evident that we are pretty good at parties!

John Deas ran the raffle and was his usual outgoing self.

Martin gave a speech (all the usual jokes about standing up were wheeled out)

This fantastic array of sea food was on offer and tasted as good as it looked.

And thankfully there was no need to hold back as there was plenty of food to go round.

A great night had by all to round off a superb and sociable year. Well done everyone!
