6 March 2009: Wot-No Paper Hats? (but at least Gordon wore a tie)
Another heaving table at the post-Christmas dinner held at Don Pepe's in Norwich on 6 March 2009. For people who previously furrowed their brows over ex HMSO Electronic Publishing they look surprisingly relaxed (relaxed as newts?) — Robbie of Kirriemuir balancing a bottle of Rioja on his head — Martin of Pimlico about to play the spoons — John Saville, Lynda Marshall, Alan Pawsey, Jayne Wilkinson and Philip Marriage all waiting for Jack Keating to jump out of the cake, wrestling an alligator.
