Christmas Lunch at Buxton

Manchester and Northwest Group's Christmas lunch

Bryan and Morwena Jones with Laura Donnellan, one of the Group's youngest members.

The Manchester and North West Group held its Annual Christmas Lunch outing in the Pavilion Gardens Restaurant, Buxton, on Sunday, 3rd December, 2006.   A total of thirty people attended including the very welcome attendance of Mike Wilkes and members of his family.  Brian Shakespeare, our very popular "Dr Vanguard" also came along, his presence  always being welcomed by the the Group's members. 


It was nice to see once again Carol and Steven Madeley who had travelled from South Wales to attend the lunch.  Carol who is a great Group supporter undertook a sponsored walk for the Group in 2004 and raised over £400 for Group funds.  Gareth Ireland, another faithful supporter travelled from Liverpool to attend the function.


Laura Donnellan, one of our most junior members was presented with a locket for her dedication in supporting the Group over the last few years.


The weather, although cold was fine and after the lunch many of the members attended an Antiques Fair that was being held in the Pavilion Gardens Complex during the afternoon.


Altogether, the day was deemed a great success. The Group's Organiser brought the afternoon to a close by thanking everyone for their support and promised them an interesting Group programme for 2007.  Anyone wishing to join the Manchester Group should contact Bryan on (0161) 483 7121.
