What a great afternoon was had at the 2023 Central Region Christmas dinner..!

Members came from far and wide to bring some festive cheer to each other.

Secret Santa was doing his rounds with some great presents. The three course meals was delicious and it was made a great day with quizzes and a virtual sheep judging session. Well done to Matt Greenow for winning..!

All in all a great, fun and satisfying afternoon..!

Thanks to all those who helped organise it, donated gifts to the raffle and to all those that came..x
