The inaugural Essex Business Forum summer garden party/ barbeque at Aidan Squires home was really well attended on Sunday 4th August with around 35 people attending made up of 19 members and their partners.
The dress was casual and Stuart Roberts gave new meaning to the term by wearing a very smart suit! Some of the ladies also made a special effort in dressing up for the occasion.
Due to Aidan and Sues superb organisation the event went off without a hitch and they were splendid hosts. The food was great and plentiful as were the beverages both alcoholic and non!
We were all able to enjoy each others company in much less formal surroundings than usual and this in turn gave us all a chance to get to know each other better.
Many thanks obviously to Aidan and Sue but also to Scott Griffiths who brought along a giant gazebo to keep the very welcome sun off of our heads and allow us to gather in shade.
The event was so successful that people are asking if we are going to do it again and the answer is a definite yes.
Thank you to all who attended to make this a successful event and to those that were unable to attend make sure you book it in your diary for next year.
