Christmas Social 2018
To end 2018 we had our Christmas Social on the 14th December. Our resident photographer Warren Bone (G7WMB) managed to catch most of the people avoiding being photographed.
Last month I popped a few live photos straight onto the site from the 2018 Rally. However, there were more. So here are some of the additional pictures I took.
