The evening was attended by 431 guests who enjoyed dinner by well-known chef, Michael Kernall, an auction and grand draw followed by dancing.



The auction was conducted by Tim Waring of Knight Frank and prizes in the auction and grand draw included a skiing holiday in the French Alps, overnight stays at the Hotel du Vin, Harrogate and the Jumeirah Carlton Tower Hotel in London and a diamond pendant kindly donated by Berry’s Jewellers.
