What a really great night - probably beat the Oscars for glitz, glamour and Trophies!! A lovely candlelit ambience greeted the diners as they entered the Champagne Suite at the Buckatree Hall Hotel besides the Wrekin, a splendid begining to the evening of fun and terrific food preceeded the main event where we all presented trophies to each other and generally patted each other on the back, we had such a good time that we felt sorry for all you guys who couldn't come.
On 27th February a gorgeous baby girl born to Andy and Amanda Smith - 7lb 15oz Ruby Louise. Amanda and Ruby and doing fine,
Thomas Vale weighed in at just under 7lb on 7th March, a lovely new baby boy for Pete and Susie Vale. Susie and Thomas are both fine.
Congratulations to all.
