?? Members and guests assembled in the historic town of Shrewsbury for the 2014 annual reunion week-end.
The venue was the equally historic Prince Rupert Hotel. Formally the home of Prince Rupert, grandson of James I, parts of this Grade II listed building date back to the 12th century. It is also reputed to be haunted.
Gavin Fuller took a year out of organising the event and this task fell into the hands of the very capable Ken Emond.
Ken arranged a very well attended evening river cruise on the Severn for guests arriving on the Friday.
Saturday morning members took part in a guided tour of the town. The guide was Martin Wood the Town Crier of Shrewsbury, an imposing figure in his full regalia, large white beard and a staggering 7' 4" tall.
A further tour on Saturday afternoon took members on "The Cadfael" walk. This centered around places mentioned in the books by Edith Pargeter, finishing at Shrewsbury Abbey,
A fine meal was enjoyed on the Saturday evening, the dining room adorned with suits of armour.
Ann Hegerty won her second Magnum competition, with new comer John Wheeler claiming the Mugnum.
A great week-end, enjoyed by all.
