Over the years the search for a venue for parties has been a, sometimes difficult, task for committee members and in 1999 for the annual party in January we were lucky to find the Phoenix Pub in  Palace Street prepared to set the whole pub aside for us for the evening.  It was an excellent social evening with nibbles and good conversation and but no music.  Below are some photographs in which, looking back from 2012, it is striking to see how young and fresh all the familiar faces were then!!  Sadly there are three people in the photographs who are no longer with us.
