The meal was finished off by a colourful display of fresh fruit kebabs.  Compliments to the chefs for the fabulous food.

This night also held a special birthday suprise for one of our staff members as Dan was presented with a birthday cake.  Many Happy Returns.  This was followed by a raffle with lots of prizes on offer and then to a quiz which put us all to the test.  A very good time was had by all who attended.
