We attended a reception at the Nottingham Council House in the Market Square, with club members and their guests, plus a few members of the City of Literature board.
There was a short speech by the Lord Mayor (who was previously the Sheriff of Nottingham), and then by our President of 10 years, Roy Bainton.

The club committee provided the wine and non-alcoholic drinks.

There were about 35 - 40 people at the reception, but not everyone was going on to the nearby restaurant, George's, for dinner.
We had part of the cake at the reception, and rather than ordering any puddings after our dinner (don't think any of us had room for pudding anyway) we had another slice of cake to finish...
It was a wonderful evening all round, with lots of talking, as well as the eating and drinking.

It may look like we're doing head contortions and looking in the wrong place, but the room lights were reflecting off the lenses of our glasses, so we had to keep making adjustments until we eradicated the light problem.
The club's celebrations continue for the rest of the year, but they'll be low-key...
Only 10 more years until the 100th anniversary...
