This year’s Christmas Party had a dress theme of Raffles (Colonial Singapore Dress) and many members got into the spirit of the night. None more so than Richard Jenkins.
The night kicked off after drinks and tapas by MC Peter Hackett who was in fine form. He thanked Julie Geldard for all her support during the year with the photography and video work.
