Apologies to one and all, especially those who have already made tentative arrangements, but the date stated for the Bangor Dinner in the previous post was incorrect – it should have read Friday 18 November, 7.30 for 8pm, and not the previous week.

Blame it on the aftermath of the Brexit vote, the pain of defeat at the hands of the Welsh (or, depending on one’s perspective, the French) or plain old stupidity, but rest assured that as you read this the culprits are standing, shamefaced, outside Randall Clarke’s office in readiness for a severe flogging!
