Twice a year – once in the summer and once in the winter – RNA members and friends converge from all parts of the UK in the Royal Overseas League in Park Place, off St. James Street, in order to party. The Summer Party 2015, which took place on the evening of May 21st, was even better than ever, and once again, I’m going to indulge myself by posting some of the photos I took, which allows me to re-live the fun I had.
To start at the beginning. The AGM preceded the party, and during this, I was confirmed as RNA Libraries’ Liaison. After the AGM, with a short period of time before the party was due to begin, the balcony and the glorious weather beckoned, and we headed for a glass of wine in the sun.
On the balcony …
