Waddesdon Manor, 15th November 2007
Old members enjoyed a special treat on 15th November with a tour of Waddesdon Manor, adorned with sumptious Christmas decorations inside and out and populated by ballet dancers and children dressed as characters from the tales of Hans Christian Andersen. Especially memorable were the rooms representing the tale of the 'Princess and the Pea' and a delightful 'Thumbelina'. A delicous three course supper was served in the Manor Restaurant and hosted by Simon Offen, the Association Chairman, and his wife Kathryn. Christ Church would like to thank them both for giving our old members such a warm welcome and a thoroughly delightful evening.
