LOWDOWN Summer 2012

NEWS HOUND
All the news that’s fit to bark!

2: THE BRANCH CHRISTMAS LUNCH, 4th December 2011

The Branch Christmas Lunch 2011 was held at The White Horse in Ditchling - the same venue we use for our committee meetings.

Members gathered, many cutting a fine dash in party finery which was, no doubt, due to us not holding a walk beforehand and this resulted in leaving wellies and wax jackets at home.

Our Chairman entertained us with a short address - always very amusing - and presented the Branch Walks Trophy to Lin and John Plant - who accepted it on behalf of their hounds, Amelia & Alfred.

This was followed by the award of Lowdown’s Winnie’s Wheelbarrow Trophy to Jean Miller, for her contribution to the newsletter over several years.

Well done, ladies!

Although the luncheon service was very slow - I understand due to the inexperience in catering for such a large group - the food was delicious and the company lovely. We understand that these teething problems should be sorted out for this year’s event. Why not come along?
