The RAF Club proved a wonderful setting for the presentation of the RoNAs 2013. The room looked lovely, the wine and bubbly flowed freely, the food was delicious and plentiful, and everyone was warm and friendly. It has often been said that no one throws a party like the RNA, and this party certainly proved the truth of that.

I know you will have all seen the results by now, and will have been told how delightful Richard & Judy were, and that the charming Sophie Kinsella gave a lovely speech, so I’m going to stand back and let my photographs do the talking.
