Centarian Regimental Association
Former Cadets of Christ’s College Finchley
As a result speeches started earlier and everything ran neatly to time. This proved popular with members who had travelled great distances and we fully intend to make this the “form” for many years to come.
OF President Geoff Niblett proposed the toast to the school although unfortunately, Gary Tucker, for the first time in many years was unable to attend and provide the response. Keith Ellen was our final speaker proposing the toast to the contingent and repeating Olaf Dudley’s party piece of illustrating his speech with a full multimedia presentation.
Thanks as always to Mike Crick for his assistance with menu cards, Geoff Owen for the drinks arrangements and to Halls for the catering.
On 4th June 2010 the attendance pendulum swung back towards the recent average as 34 Centarians and their guests sat down to dine at Southover. We moved to Hall’s Catering who have catered the OF Club dinners for many years and although we normally fall below their minimum numbers, they agreed to handle our dinner. Switching to Halls was clearly a smart move. Our Chicken in Bacon with a Leek sauce was served swiftly and efficiently – and we even started (almost) promptly.
