Dinner Dance and Awards Presentation Saturday 3rd February

Having attended the Annual Dinner Dance and Awards Presentation of the Motor Club for quite a few years (more than I would like to calculate) I won(?!) the prize of the newsletter write up.

Held at Mercure Leeds Parkway Hotel the Ballroom was beautifully decorated with the club colours and logos-from the seat bows to sparkles on the tables. There was a sparkling display of the trophies/awards to be presented-the history of the club in one place to be admired. All the trophies shone- a testament to lots of hard work and elbow grease. Many thanks to Leon and Karen Humphries.

There was the usual extensive tombola, well organised and displayed. Many thanks to Sheena and Iain Tullie. I enjoyed my selection of the menu choices which was served promptly, a table at a time. A lovely touch was leaving coffee jugs with us for any refills we required. The cheese and biscuits had a particular mention in our household- a very interesting selection.

President Dave Sowman and his wife Pam presented the awards with Secretary Ian Mitchell as Master of Ceremonies. Henry Kitching acted as official photographer. The disco played us a general selection to please all ages with the Tindalls leading the way!! Many thanks again to all the people behind the scenes who worked hard to make the evening the great success it was.
