N&E District Planning Meeting

On 18 January at St Anne’s, Highgate, the District Planning Meeting discussed the calendar of events for 2014, shared a meal, and enjoyed a Quiz.  Following the meeting we were turned loose on the most amazing bring-and-share buffet – better than I’ve seen at many professionally catered events.  There followed the Quiz under Quiz Master Patrick Draper (Saffron Walden) who kept a tight rein on proceedings and kept us marching along at a brisk pace.  Our grateful thanks go to Patrick for travelling to London to run the event.  The winning team snatched victory by a whisker, and  we raised £280 for the Bell Restoration Fund.  Profuse appreciation and a round of applause for Janet Betham who – even with an ankle in plaster – managed to organise this most enjoyable evening. (Reporter: Sarah Stanton).
