The AGM and Dinner took place at the
Royal Over-Seas League
on Sunday, April 15th.

After the AGM, entertainment was provided by Sarah Leonard, Nicola Harrison and Patricia Williams in a programme entitled From Dawn Till Dusk. The encore of The Owl & the Pussycat was written by Michael Pilkington for Patricia Routledge to sing in a production of Goldilocks and the Three Bears in 1955!

Chairman, Sarah Leonard, introduced Honorary President, Dame Patricia as the guest speaker. Dame Patricia’s theme was of mentors who had influenced her life and guided her. She talked about how we all had such mentors in our lives and that we, no doubt, were mentoring the next generation.

Once again, the annual dinner was a chance to meet up with old friends and colleagues and to make new acquaintances.

Some happy diners…
