Lancs Branch Annual Dinner Dance 2007
The Queens Hotel, Chester was again host to the branch's Annual Dinner Dance, held on the 10th February; with approx 80 persons enjoying a most fabulous evening.
The National President, Mr Barrie Williams and his wife Joan, were made most welcome by the many Lancashire Past Presidents, namely Mr & Mrs Bruce & Janet Ellison, Mr & Mrs Trevor & Tina Dunn; Mr & Mrs Russel & Enid Daniels (Banqueting Secretaries); Mr & Mrs David & Christine Hambley (Branch Secretary); Mr Graham R Hall (Branch President) and partner Mrs Ettie Toyn.
Every company and attendees who had supported both Branch and Institute for many years, were thanked by Graham for making such events a memorable occasion; a minutes silence was held in respect of Mr Derek Lewis – a great friend/colleague/trustee/lecturer within our foundry industry and a very honourable gentleman. Guests were entertained by a Harpist during the main meal and afterwards the usual Disco Dancing well into the early hours. A great time was had by all!
