Doddy delights at memorable Southport lunch

On 10 July 2012, PHIL KING invited our Chairman to a Summer Lunch date on behalf of the Institute of Municipal Entertainment at the Ramada Plaza Hotel in Southport.

Also invited was our new North West (North) Regional Executive ALAN COLES and his wife ADELE, which provided an opportunity for the couple to meet Phil and East Anglian Regional Executive PETER CRESSWELL and his wife ROSLYN (who kindly took the above photo of (right to left) Peter, Alan, Guest Speaker KEN DODD, Phil and our Chairman).

It was wonderful to get three of our Regional Executives together at such an enjoyable occasion. Phil did invite our Chairman to say a few words about the Campaign, which he just about managed in spite of some hilarious barracking from Mr Dodd.
