Annual Summer Reception

Over one hundred members and guests attended our fifth summer reception. This was held once again at Osborne Bros. on Billet Wharf in the Old Town.

The weather, although chilly for a June evening was thankfully dry. The ever popular Hoy Shanty Crew entertained us with a blend of traditional shanties and choral songs. They give of their time freely but are always pleased to receive a pint or four!!

We were delighted that Dunkirk veteran, Alfred Smith, could join us again.

We are grateful to Peter and Sue Osborne for the use of their premises and to Mick Kilkelly who once again provided a superb choice of hot and cold food including fish dishes, savouries and sweets - something for everyone.

Thanks also to Luke and his team at the Crooked Billet, especially for supplying an ‘Endeavour Ale’ for the occasion.

We raised in excess of £600 pounds which  was possible, thanks to the generosity of so many members who donated raffle prizes, and of course, to everyone who supported the event.
