Christmas Dinner - 2006 - Pictures

15 th December 2006 Produced this page.

December 2006 at the Bell, Retendon Commom.

31 CARS Members assembled at The Bell, about 6 miles out of Chelmsford on the old A130 to Southend on Sea. It was a dry day but very windy.

Julie & Brian, G4CTS organised the Dinner from a provisional booking made by Murray, G6JYB earlier in the year. Unfortunately for a number of reasons a few CARS Members could not attend the event which started at 7pm.

Drinks were obtained from the bar and we were soon seated in the nicely decorated Chimes Resturant. Seating was around 4 large tables giving adequate elbow space.

Grace was said by Tony, G4YTG. Members had already chosen their Starter and this was served at 7.20 by a number of lovely young ladies. Starters included Whitebait, Prawn Cocktail, Melon, Soup & Pate.

A quiz was given out which required the names of the London Underground - this was won by Julie & Tony.

Main Course was Turkey, Spare Rib, Lamb & Beef served with vegs & tall Yorkshire Puddings. Plenty of conversation enabled members to get to know others better.

After a Vote of Thanks we all drove home at about 10.45pm.

Julie has made a provisional booking for a CARS Christmas Lunch at Midday, 1st December, 2007 in the same room.
