P&P Christmas Ball 2012


Event: P&P Christmas Ball 2012

Date: 8/12/2012___Time: 7pm to midnight___Venue: RNLI Banqueting Suite, Poole

About 100 P&P members and guests helped to end a great year for P&P with a fabulous Ball organised by our Social Network team. In seasonal surroundings the tables were festooned with decorative baubles and personalised place settings. The room buzzed with noisy chatter during the festive three course meal which was served by friendly and attentive waiters and waitresses. Following the meal Dawn Goodwin and her band Bagga Blues rocked the evening away as P&Pers worked off the meal with some high energy dancing. There was a special presentation to Karl and Clo for their fantastic work on The Legends, and the evening would not have been complete without a little fundraising with some amusing games. The occasion was recorded permanently in a set of photographs taken during the evening by a professional photographer.

Wow, what a fantastic Ball last night. Thank you so much to the marvellous Social Network for organising such a brilliant night. The event ran like clockwork, there was wonderful entertainment from Dawn Goodwin and her fab band, Bagga Blues and much fun was had by all.

During her low-key address to the assembled throng Clare recounted that on the Saturday evening of a week earlier she had taken an unplanned dip in the Stour (or was it the Avon?) having seen Elvis Presley, it seems she was somewhat p….d. She was walking home in deepest, darkest Dorset with a group of companions following an evening out when, because she was somewhat p….d, she had gone in search of a convenient spot to gain relief and unfortunately was unaware that there was a river behind the bushes. It was some minutes before her “friends” realised she was missing and, having overcome a short period of panic, Katherine Miller and co. located Clare and managed to pull her out. Fortunately she appears to have made a complete recovery from the ordeal, it is not completely clear though if anyone else saw Elvis Presley on that evening or whether it was just a halucinatory effect of the drink.
By the way, does anyone want to be chairman?
