140th Anniversary Dinner Dance - Friday 20th May 16

What a superb evening as 108 of us met in the Calcot Hotel, Reading to enjoy an evening of excellent food, great company as we met with friends old and new.

 

Our DJ played a great selection of music and even managed to find the music for 'Strip the Willow,' a wild Scottish Dance that we only just survived.

 

The old time ballroom steps were also evident although perhaps not up to the standards of 'Strictly Come Dancing.'  But we did have a really good time.

 

Thanks to everyone at the Calcot Hotel for helping make our evening, so Very Special.
