Christmas Lunch Header

The Christmas Lunch 08 was a most cheerful event, just what we all needed amongst all the doom and gloom of the ‘Credit Crunch’. We had wondered if numbers would be down this year but to our delight, we achieved a really good number and the Great Room really buzzed.

Our President, Sian Williams, hosted the occasion she came with her partner. Bill Turnbull, her co presenter on BBC Breakfast, came with his wife. We were pleased to welcome Bill as he has kindly agreed to deputise for Sian at the Awards ’09. Sian may be otherwise engaged, her baby is due on 10 March 09!

The decorations, balloons, poinsettias, and a lovely Christmas tree, fast- forwarded the Great Room to Christmas, getting many of us into the Christmas spirit. Once again we had a delicious, traditional Christmas Lunch with all the trimmings. This followed the now well established Champagne Reception. The ever popular Salvation Army Band played us in to a Christmassy melody.

Carols 2008
Everybody joined in with the carols

After lunch we joined The Salvation Army Band to sing a medley of well- loved Christmas Carols when we all sang in hearty voice. We then held the inevitable, ubiquitous TRIC Raffle. Here we must say thank you for the most generous Raffle Prizes which were donated by our Corporate Members and the Hotel.
Our hearty thanks and congratulations to the lucky winners.

We then settled down whilst our past President and good TRIC friend, Tom O’Connor, entertained us in his own inimitable way. Tom’s easy, relaxed style and his amusing anecdotes and stories were just right to round off a most special occasion. He certainly set that feel good factor.
