A few pictures of our Presidents Party, which this year was held, courtesy of our President, Colin Rayner, at BCA (Berkshire College of Agriculture) on Sunday 15th September 2019.
The weather was glorious, really showing off this wonderful venue.
We were welcomed by music from Windsor School Jazz Band, who were absolutely fantastic and entertained us, in the sunshine, all afternoon, while we enjoyed a drinks reception and canapés, tours around the College and then a delicious buffet lunch in the gorgeously ornate Drawing Room.
The day was such a treat for our members and our families and friends. We got to meet some beautiful horses, very cute donkeys and all the incredible animals in the zoo - gentle giant, Denzil the porcupine and his cheeky meerkat family, were a delight and big hit with everyone!
A huge thank you goes to our very generous President, Colin, his wife, Samantha and their daughters for organising such a fantastic day.
Thanks also to Dorothy and Sybil, the BCA caterers and to Liz Hadden and the team at BCA for the very knowledgeable guided tours around the College, the equestrian centre and the zoo.
Thanks again to everyone involved, another lovely day, had by all.
