:: [ SVVS Dinner - Reigate Manor Hotel, Reigate - February 2015 ] ::

Reigate Manor Hotel was again the venue for the 2015 Annual SVVS Dinner and was attended by a smashing turnout of 90 people. This was the sixth Dinner presided over by Chairman Bozi Mohacek (aka Vintman), ably assisted by Mrs Chairman Julie Mohacek who organised the Raffle, -  and who also presented the cups. Raffle ticket sales were carried out by Julie, Janet Russell, Thelma Oakes and Gosia Hone. 

The Hotel staff were very friendly and efficient and were almost unnoticeable by their super efficiency! The use of the Bar area and the small Brokes room as pre-dinner drinks seating area was a great success. Not much can be faulted with the meal and the service. A venue that can be recommended !

After the superb meal, the SVVS Cups and accolades went to:  Ian and Christine Scott who got the Chairman's Cup for winning the Treasure Hunt; the Hero Cup was awarded to Doug Sizmuir for 'An Interesting Historical Car Restoration'; the Award for winning the SVVS Quiz went to Nick Woollett (collected on his behalf to pass on by Tony Oakes); and the award for Outstanding Services to the SVVS, the President's Cup, was presented to the SVVS Founding Chairman Derrick Graham.

As to the Guest Speaker, we were lucky enough to obtain the services of Philip Dixon who advised his talk could be described as either "The surprised author !"  or a more agrarian….. " A load of bull !" . Perhaps a more descriptive version of his talk is the title of his current book 'Dairy Cows and Duck Races - a Northumbrian Farmer Remembers'. Either way the talk was about how the son of an urban chemist from Gateshead, ooop norf, learned to walk 800kg Bulls and then went on to have close encounters while working alongside these bovine Giants. As is the custom, the Speaker nominated where the proceeds of the SVVS Raffle should go, and Philip had nominated the local Brooklands School in Reigate for children between the ages of 3 and 11 with multiple difficulties for whom we raised nearly £400. A worth while, a most enjoyable and superb evening was had by all!
