:: [ SVVS Dinner - Reigate Manor Hotel, Reigate - February 2014 ] ::

Reigate Manor Hotel was again the venue for the 2014 Annual SVVS Dinner and was attended by a smashing turnout of 90 people. This was the fifth Dinner presided over by the new 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 Rick (in the absence of) 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.

After the superb meal, the SVVS Cups and accolades went to:  Nick Woollett who got the Chairman's Cup for winning the Treasure Hunt; the Hero Cup was awarded to Desmond Peacock for 'An Interesting Historical Car Restoration'; the Award for winning the SVVS Quiz went to Chris Cuss; and the award for Outstanding Services to the SVVS, the President's Cup, was presented jointly to Linda Malings and Fraser Clayton.

As to the Guest Speaker, we were lucky enough to obtain the services of Reverend John Scott who is the retiring Vicar of St Philip's Reigate after 24 years. John is not your average 'Miss Marple' type Vicar; - studied at Westminster Abbey, Theology at Kings College London, then local vicar , then Hospital Chaplain at the City-of-Wells Hospitals, Chaplain at Pangbourne Naval College, …was a Sub Lieutenant in the Royal Navy Volunteer Reserve, - then the School Chaplain at St Bede's School Redhill, and then eventually the Vicar of St Philip's Reigate. This, simultaneously, as being for 22 years the Territorial Chaplain to the Armed forces in the Royal Army Chaplains Department. He is a friend of our Publicity Officer Tony Russell, and he with Mr and Mrs Chairman, are all going together to South Africa, where John will be marrying Tony's daughter Felicity to a Rustenburg diamond mining engineer !! 

John also drew the raffle, the proceeds of which went, as is the tradition, to the Speaker's chosen charity, which was the Alzheimer's Society.
