Having been on Permanent Annual Leave for a few years now, we finally decided to try out a CAWPA lunch this year. During the course of employment with the Company, the ambition used to be to reach a senior position as soon as possible. However, with this outfit, we're in absolutely no hurry whatsoever!!
There are quite a few photos, so it may take a while to load. Unfortunately not all of us are blessed with Superfast Broadband, as BT seems to think that ADSL means Any Delay Saves Lots!! ...so please be patient. (..don't they all say that!!)

"Honest, Tone -

Everybody out! Another function's about to follow.
....AND TORQUAY 2007!!!
Following an absence of about three years, largely caused by several bouts of suicidal depression from reading articles on the F1 email Forum, we decided to give TQ another go and once more join the annual lunchtime Bunfight at the Palace Hotel. Either we’re getting old or the other guests are getting even older, (maybe both?) but this year the attendance seemed to be positively historic. Since there appears to be few , if any, replacement Retirees coming in from anywhere of what’s left of C&W, the continued “life” of such reunions must surely be questionable.
(Come on you Pensions people -
However, as ever, everyone enjoyed themselves, the meal was 9/10, the company was good and we all went home more than a few quid lighter than when we arrived. Back next year ?
Dave E, prays this year’s meal is better than last year.
