Autumn Celebrity Night
98 members and guests attended our Autumn Celebrity Night. We started off with a champagne reception which had kindly been donated by Lousada plc., and then enjoyed a four course dinner. Our guest speaker for the evening was David Fletcher, an Antiques and Collectables Valuer and local Auctioneer but also currently appearing on the ever popular BBC2’s “Flog It” programme. David brought along a selection of antiques and collectables and we had a quiz to try and guess the age, value etc., of each piece. He then gave us an interesting talk on his work and gave us some anecdotes about his appearances on the television. He judged the quiz and kindly donated a bottle of champagne to the winner. He gave us all food for thought about our collectables and was an amusing and informed speaker. We held a raffle and then David kindly agreed to auction two items for us and our total profit was a great result.
