February : Quiz
An excellent evening at the Red Lion, Bishopsgate for a quiz. A bottle of Cotes du Rhone, Chateau Aldi, 2020 (a particularly brutal year) was won by David Woollard-Kingston.

We were delighted to welcome a new member in the form of David Bullock who was Norwich City Cryer for over 30 years. David is a fascinating character and a very welcome addition to the club.
