Yesterday's Charter Dinner seemed to go very well. I would like to say a particular thank you to everyone who attended. I would also like to thank everyone there for sticking to the instructions not to leave their places before the speeches nor to wander around the Hall chatting during the formal dinner. Lastly I would like to say a big thank you to Helen Ashworth, our Event Manager, for sorting all the admin (including lots of last-minutes changes), Ron Duncan, our Hall Manager, and his staff for organising the event so efficiently and to Richard Fisher, our Catering Manager, and his staff for a superb meal and excellent service. Together they made my job as Clerk so much easier and allowed me to properly enjoy this great event.
