    December 2017

    A group of 36 volunteers and some partners got together at the Rose and Crown Hotel in Harnham, Salisbury for a Christmas lunch and social get together.

    Assembling in the bar area, the chat got under way as volunteers met up with colleagues and names were put to faces with some volunteers bringing their significant others with them.

    Lunch was served in the Orangery restaurant with beautiful views across the hotel gardens and the passing River Avon.   There was a good choice of dishes on the menu and the option of two or three course meals.  The service and food were both very good and not one single complaint or grouse was received so I think that we may be back next year given the very positive feedback from those who attended.

    At the end of the meal Trustee Gordon MacDougall gave a vote of thanks to volunteers on behalf of the Trustees and read out special messages from Chair David (Lord) Hunt and Lincoln Seligman, one of Sir Edward's many godchildren.

    The Rose and Crown did very well for us and the special party balloons on the tables provided some lighthearted amusement throughout the afternoon.  A hardy few stayed on at the bar to down a seasonal malt whisky, no names obviously.....
