Once again we are indebted to Nomura for allowing us the use of their beautiful roof terrace overlooking the Thames for our annual summer party. It affords us the opportunity to meet friends old and new, while enjoying wonderful hot and cold food and desserts accompanied by wine, beer and soft drinks. For those who have not attended before you are treated to great views from the terrace of the Shard, HMS Belfast, Southwark Cathedral, the Golden Hinde II and Tower Bridge before taking a leisurely stroll to admire the bountiful rooftop kitchen gardens.
This year the Committee thought it would be a fun idea to encourage everyone to be flamboyant in their attire by having a hat competition. There will be two prizes, one for the best ladies’ headwear and one for the best men’s. This will be an opportunity to get out the boaters, fascinators, once worn wedding hats or perhaps you may fashion something yourself. The more daring and courageous the better but apart from that, there are no rules about size or style other than it must be worn and not carried (hat pins are probably vital so it doesn’t blow off into the river!). The judging will be carried out by the Committee and our guest Dave Thomson, the Chelsea pensioner who conducted our tour, and who will present the prizes.
