Our annual Ladies Luncheon was once again held in the Blenheim suite at Coulsdon Manor Hotel. We have held our premier luncheon at Coulsdon Manor for a few years now, mainly because of the fantastic value for the meals and wonderful ambience of the hotel and the Blenheim Suite. Once again the hotel and staff gave us wonderful service. A number of members and their guests commented on the high quality of the meal.
The Ladies luncheon is the chance for members to pay tribute to the ladies and widows of past members. However, we did have a late arrival when confused member was telephoned and reminded that the luncheon was not next week!
The toast to the ladies was given by Andrew Banfield OBE our Immediate Past Chairman and a reply was given by Pauline Payne, the wife of our 2012 chairman.
Our 2012 chairman, Ian Payne, gave the toast to Coulsdon Probus, in which he outlined the events of his year, and thanked members of the club committee for their support.
