Sunday 11th February, make a mental note of this date as this was, in the first instance, a day when our catering ladies worked miracles and their leader for brunches, President Rosemary Bradbury, announced her retirement immediately following the next brunch on March 18th, in other words, the end of an era UNLESS somebody else steps up to the plate for next year. Rosemary has indicated she is very willing to pass on all the information needed to her successor should one be found.
As to the miracle the team performed, this is related to the fact that at 10.30am, just when they were about to start the preparation, yet again the gas supply to the cooker failed but the team succeeded in presenting 30 plus delicious and very acceptable full English breakfast brunches whilst cooking on a two plate gas camping stove.
Many congratulations to Rosemary, Wendy, Ellen, Niki, Eleanor and the one and only male Richard in achieving the impossible.
You all deserve a gold medal.
