19, 20 and 21 October 2012
Forty nine members and wives attended the 2012 Reunion in Cardiff, organised by Shug Dalgleish. The Marriott hotel is situated in the centre of Cardiiff and it gave easy access to 100s of shops and restaurants. Not far away is Cardiff Bay (formerly Tiger Bay) which has been extensively modernised and is a first-rate tourist attraction.
The weekend began with the assembly of attendees on the Friday afternoon in the Marriott Hotel bar to renew old acquaintances and to swap memories of our time at Halton. We were delighted to have Alister (Scottie) Finnie and his wife Lorna join us for the first time. Saturday was an opportunity to browse round the excellent shopping and restaurant facilities, visit Cardiff Castle or Cardiff Bay before the main Reunion Dinner in the evening.
As usual, the AGM was held on the Sunday morning when the accounts were presented to the members for scrutiny and the next venue for 2013 was confirmed (the Isle of Wight). We then said our goodbyes and headed for home. This was yet another very enjoyable reunion — many thanks to Shug and Virginia Dalgleish.
