Our speakers this year were Steve Goldsmith, Gary Tucker and Peter Johnson and a number of members were heard to remark that Peter's speech was the best in living memory (and that's a very long time).

Thanks as always to Mick Crick for his assistance with menu cards, Geoff Owen for the drinks arrangements and to Pierre for the catering.

CRA Dinner 2008

Peter Johnson's Speech

28 Centarians and their guests sat down to dine on the 30th May 2008 at Southover. This was a disappointing turnout and I suspect that members who hear about the outstanding speeches and excellent food will wish that they had attended the 2008. I hope that next year will see a return to numbers of diners in the high 40's or even the elusive 50. Pierre’s catering was, once again, exemplary and I suspect that once again Centarians will have anticipated the late finish.
