That's one hell of a party you must have been having on your table! But more importantly, which kinky sod brought the Hedgehog?


Anyway, It was a great night and so nice to see everyone.

Oh, and thanks Chris for the top-up.

What a great evening we had 'socialising' with friends.
I received a comment 'You scrub up quite well really don't you', which as it was from James, I will take as a compliment !!

I must have had a fair bit to drink because I found myself on the dance floor with Rose, Wendy and Lin

Colin survived the evening better than I expected, considering he started drinking at 2pm with some of the other blokes while some of us girlies went swimming!! 12 hours drinking is pretty good going in my book !!!


Looking forward to seeing any photos that were taken during the evening. Some were in a better state than others, and one in particular didn't make it down for breakfast

Mmmm, apart from the 'buffet' thing........ we much preferred the dinner that they served last year.


Yeah, big thanks to Elaine G for arranging it all again.

Unfortunately they were not doing the same functions as last year. The party nights like we had last year were moved to a Friday and the saturdays were dinner dress and mega expensive.I suggest if people are not happy with the food we leave it for next year and someone tries to find something else. I think you will struggle for that price and quality of accomodation

Hi Elaine,


No one's having a go ... We think the "do" was fantastic ! The accomodation and the venue were all pretty good value for money and I'm quite sure I'll be back next year. We really do appreciate you organising it.

The food was dire though, I mean tinned fruit slad as a starter? Cold plates? These are things that are easy enough to get right. After all, breakfast was great, food ..and plates.. piping hot and lots of it, so it was a shame they let themselves down on the evening.

Cheers, Jono...now hairless again....

Obviously (living 10mins away) we didn't stay in the hotel, so we can't comment on that side of it. But we agree with Jono, for 20 the food/service in the evening was pretty poor..... Maybe the folks who were meant to be doing the buffet had let them down or something, hence the bizarre menu?

BUT we still had a good time (and we were both pretty much sober)!

Hi just going through the photo,s and it looks like you all had a Scamptastic night, it is a shame that these christmas do,s are down to a price, Given the size of the venue and how "posh it was last year" they should provide a better service. On another note Martin your not a stunt double for David Walliams are you? (Got that clutch done yet) Ttfn 4x4 Rob.

What a fun night!!! Thanks to Elaine for organising it Smile

I think the food was meant to be in keeping with the 70's theme but there's a reason British food in the 70's was considered the worst in the world Wink

And a nice photo of Iain looking as James put it 'like an Open University lecturer'
