Yet another new venue for the ARPO lunch, at Restaurant Rendezvous, was organised for March by Nick and Susan Bradford. Although the weather did try to dampen things, by the time members and guests were arriving the sun was beginning to shine.
A total of 46 members and guests attended (is this a record for a lunch?) and all enjoyed a lovely five course meal with plenty of choices – alioli and tomato, starter, main course, desert and coffee – accompanied by half a litre of wine per person. The quality of the food and the service were both excellent.
The organisers arranged a ‘bottle’ raffle, which seemed to be very well received, even the two bottles of virgin olive oil!
Our Chairman gave a vote of thanks to both Susan and Nick and of course the Rendezvous staff.
