Friday 15th September was a rather grand affair where we accompanied the Mayor, Councillor Valerie White with her husband and Consort David, to greet guests at the RMA Sandhurst to the civic dinner. As the first to arrive we were privileged to be given a tour of the private rooms for prestigious guests – the place where royalty chill out before a parade or passing out of the officers.
We stood to attention with the Mayor and her Consort to welcome guests in the main entrance with welcome drinks and a saxophone soloist.
The dinner was a collective of Councillors from Surrey Heath’s Borough Council, their partners, and local businesses that had won the Surrey Heath Business Awards.
The meal was absolutely stunning, beautifully prepared and presented. And of course the finale of a cheese board and port was gratefully (😜) received.
