Happy New Year to all! I am sure you will agree that the last luncheon was a magical end to 2016. The entertainment from Peter Wardell had us all amazed and in fits of laughter, even those who were pickpocketed! You can see all the photos by Deep South Media in the gallery.
I hope that you all had a thoroughly enjoyable Christmas and are looking forward to the year ahead, beginning with our next Luncheon on the 20th of January 2017. We will be joined by Eddie Neylon to share the next chapter of his tales from his days when he was known as ‘Charlie Delta Foxtrot’. Eddie will be entertaining us with some serious and funny stories relating to his time as part of the NATO special operations.
I look forward to seeing you and your guests at the next luncheon.
