LonRes Summer Party, 17th June

24 June 2015 | William Carrington

Again, we were fortunate with the weather and it was a warm, balmy summer’s evening.  Our guests started to arrive from 6pm and by 7pm the party was in full swing.  I was even able to make a speech to a healthy crowd this year, commenting principally on our rebranding, which was launched officially that day.

The number of attendees was down on previous years as we were constrained by Licensing laws that dictated a maximum of 600 guests at any one time.  We may have to rethink that strategy for next year but interestingly, one old timer commented how he was able to see much more of his contemporaries this year!

This year’s event and rebrand would not have gone so smoothly were it not for the collective effort of the LonRes team but particularly Emma Herriman, Georgie Seager and Alison Blease: thank you.
