VAC Dinner and Awards Evening 2023

This was held at the Aviator Hotel, Sywell, on Saturday 18th November 2023

We enjoyed an amazing evening celebrating our VAC award winners at the VAC Dinner and Awards Evening at Sywell on Saturday. (Award winners are listed below.) We would like to thank our President Sir John Allison, Lady Gill and David for joining us and for John's speech and distribution of the awards. Huge thanks also to Vron Tanner for her work over the last six months in organising the evening. Thanks also to Stuart MacConnacher for all that is involved in the collecting, polishing and engraving of our trophies as well as the design of a new certificate, much appreciated by all. I have also sent thanks on our behalf to all the staff at The Aviator, Sywell who looked after us so well.
