On the first evening, members and their partners assembled in the "Staging Post" - a traditional log cabin constructed entirely of Loch Ness Douglas fir trees - for a buffet supper, followed by an entertaining (and challenging) quiz created & presented by Duncan Summerton.

Next morning, the accompanying persons met at Cocoa-Amore, a chocolate workshop in Leicester, to listen to a talk about chocolate making and to try their hand, under expert supervision, at making their own truffles (see below).

Meanwhile, the urologists were entertained by an outstanding programme of presentations.

After lunch, we were all transported by coach to view two churches, with their stained glass, at Stanford-on-Avon and Brixworth. Images from both these fascinating churches are available in the galleries below.

Following a black tie dinner in the hotel, further presentations were given on the final morning, followed by a moving tribute to the late Phil Thomas from Suzie Venn.

Club members and their partners dispersed after lunch ... well-educated and well-fed.
