The Club’s Dinner and Presentation Night, Tuesday 23rd May
The club had a great evening on Tuesday night at the Shoulder of Mutton and was attended by quite a few members.
we had the back room and the tables were placed in an ‘L’ shape
Hopefully i have managed to get most people in a photograph during the evening
There was one table that didn’t quite fit the shape but difficult for me to clone them in lol.
Lots of chatter before starters came out
There were three choices of starters, this is the whitebait
not sure what is going on here as they look like they are watching a boxing match
Soon the mains came out
for some of us there wasn’t a lot at stake this evening lol
but all the orders were fulfilled
It was then time to give out the club awards before the sweet.
New trophies were on offer, the shields were for the four winners of the ‘Winner on the night’ print competitions.
Cups were for the Open and Theme rounds in the club’s league championship. The overall winner would get to keep the best cup and hold the club’s Golden Camera for one year.
certificates were handed out for the first, second and third places in each round of the competitions.

They are opening specially for us. Lindengate is a place for health and well-being through nature and horticulture. It has a multitude of small plots of land, each one growing various flowers and plants. There is a small pond with ducks and some chicks are likely. Several gardening sheds and various other structures are scattered around and it has a small man made hill from which the whole site is visible.
