“Ann & I have just arrived home after a very enjoyable Spring Lunch at Pannal. Many thanks to you for the arrangements and for sourcing great wines to accompany a good and interesting meal. Pannal Golf Club and their staff did very well and provided a great venue and great service.
We both felt it important to thank Peter and Carol for their welcome at the start and their circulation throughout the meal, appreciated by all. It was very good to see senior members such as Gwyneth , Charles & Ann and Alistair & Elmer who have supported the club for so long clearly enjoy the events.
We look forward to other meetings and trust our aging bodies will still allow us to attend.
The venue and weather were superb.
All wines seemed to me to lie in the range of 15 to 17.5, verging for one to 18, but what do I know !!”
– Dr. Stephen Cameron, Pick Hill
