Back to Belper for Christmas Dinner - 10th December

It was quite a treat to attend the Monday evening meeting of my own Club, Belper and Duffield, for their traditional Christmas Dinner, where partners and guests are invited.   Held at our usual venue of The Lion, now a "Pub with Rooms" rather than an hotel the meal was excellent and the service equally so.

One of our guests was Andrea Fox, a local lady who started the "Drop Inn" for youngsters of the town.  Andrea had recently been to Number Ten when she was one of the top five ladies in the country, nominated for the award of the "Most Inspirational Woman in the Country", sponsored by The Daily Mail.    She told us about her visit to Downing Street and how well she and her mother, who attended with her had been looked after.

Also attending as a guest of the club was a local man, Gerard Veran who earlier this year had run over 800 miles from Belper to his home town in Switzerland, completing a distance of more than a marathon every day for a month.  Gerard is booked to come and talk to the club about his experiences during the run, in January next year.
