A total of twenty seven members of Tyneside 114 and Durham City Divers turned up for the ‘Indian meal’ at the Himalaya Restaurant in Birtley.
In the run up to the event it had been difficult to confirm numbers due to the number of people falling by the wayside due to the current flu epidemic.
In the end, the event was extremely well attended with extra seats and settings having to be found as more and more people streamed through the door.
After an initial period of confusion, orders were successfully taken and we were soon rewarded by the delicious smell of Indian cuisine leaving the kitchens for the table.
This delicious food was consumed along with copious quantities of cobra lager.
The combination of quality food and pleasant company made for an extremely enjoyable evening.
Club funds benefited to the tune of £152.
Many thanks to Gordon Lambert for organising this successful event.
