Thanking Angela McDonald for organising the lunch and Ann-Marie and Steve Wilkinson for generously providing the wine.


After a lovely meal, we were entertained by Angela McDonald and Dorothy Bowers who read (in character) a sketch about Nelson and Hardy, see http://www.politicallyincorrect.me.uk/nelson.htm.


Enjoying Angela’s and Dorothy’s performance – a great way to end a very enjoyable occasion.
