We missed those who couldn't make it.

Thank you to Elena for arranging the event, to Peter for last minute ticket requirements and to the ESD students for inviting Dick, Dai and Sian.

Congratulations to Madison and Peter who won the table football and apologies to Matthew who had Dick on his side.
