Having had such a succesful party in 2002, the Cookham Society and Cookham Twinning decided to get together and repeat the event. Again it was held at the Chartered Institute of Marketing at Moor Hall. It was a black tie affair and took place on Saturday 27th November. Everyone met in the bar for pre dinner drinks and to order their wines to go with the meal.

The meal was held in the CIM's beautiful Berkshire dining room which had been beautifully decorated by Sally Lloyd-Parry for the occasion.

Dinner is Served

The dinner was followed by a raffle which some fantastic prizes, the tickets being drawn between the Chairs of the two Societies, David Ashwanden from the Cookham Society and Clare Setchel from Cookham Twinning. There were two rather interesting packages donated from Stratfords, could they perhaps be bottles of wine? Also whisky, champagne, Grappa, Ouzo , Madeira and Sloe Gin were some of the other bottles on offer.  

What a Raffle

I Won!

There was also the final offers for the auction for the paintings that had been used for the Cookham Society Christmas cards this year.

It was then time for the disco.  It was '60s music. The Twinning members asked if it was specially for the old fogies who were members of the Cookham Society.
