The Ringwood Hall Hotel near Chesterfield was the venue for the 90th annual Charter Dinner of the Rotary Club of Chesterfield. Gail and I arrived just after 7pm with John Horwood who was the designated driver for the night. A glass of wine was provided to all guests on arrival.
We were piped into the Ringwood Suite for dinner at 7.30pm where we enjoyed an excellent five course dinner in charming surroundings. At the end of the evening Gail and the other ladies on the top table were presented with beautiful bouquets by President Jim Haggarty, who was an excellent host and very good company thoroughout the evening.
After the usual speeches entertainment was provided by "Kick & Rush" a comedy skiffle group who played such instruments as a washboard, a frying pan, a broom stick and various others - oh and they had a guitar as well.
Congratulations to President Jim for such a good evening and my thanks to all who arranged it. It was a great occassion to celebrate your 90th Birthday.
Thanks also to Gail and to John Horwood for accompanying me from Belper
