SCARA Annual Reunion Lunch Thursday 17 November 2022
It was a wonderful turn out for the 16th SCARA Annual Reunion Lunch with 110 signing up for the event. The feedback has been excellent and with your help we would love to see even more members and friends present in 2023. As our SCARA Chairman David Cross has said….that’s only 50 weeks away!
Thanks to everyone who supported the event. We did take a risk, not knowing if it would be scuppered by travel disruptions, but luck was on our side and the risk paid off…. it even stopped raining!
A special mention to those who had an early start including colleagues who travelled from the Netherlands, Northern Ireland, Derbyshire, and Herefordshire.
There was one ‘little’ hiccup on the day, an unexpected delay of 45 minutes in opening the bar! Unforgivable but I think we quickly made up for the lost drinking time.
The 2022 event was hosted by SCARA Chairman David Cross, and we were pleased to welcome SCARA President Robert Woods and Guest Speaker Doug Bannister, CEO Port of Dover to the event.
