At the Club’s Christmas lunch at the Ocean Palace Chinese restaurant on Sunday 7 December 2008, our Chair Person Ali presented the following awards to the named members below.
Despite these awards, it appeared that everyone enjoyed the lunch and a few even enjoyed the pre-lunch sea swim at a georgeous 7 C!
Many thanks to Ali and Ray for organising this event.
