What a night we had!!  Peter Shilton was amazing, his stories relating to his long and successful career at the pinnacle of Professional Football was fascinating.  As the Gala Dinner Toastmaster, I had the chance to speak to him beforehand and he was a delight to talk too.  He was fascinated in how I became a Toastmaster and we had a good chat about people we both knew.

The evening itself was brilliant, everyone enjoyed themselves and Jo and her team had put together a great evenings entertainment.

Jo said. “Chris Caroe was our toastmaster at the DHF Gala Dinner at the Carden Park Hotel on 10 October 2014.  We could not have made a better choice.  Chris was the ultimate professional, a real hit with everyone and nothing was too much trouble for him.  He went above and beyond the call of duty in helping us prepare for our guests’ arrival, was welcoming to all and was an excellent support to the organisers on the night.  I am more than delighted to recommend Chris’ services to anyone seeking a first class toastmaster'”

The photographer on the night was Michael Common from MC Photography.  A true professional and a joy to work with. The photo with this blog was taken by Michael and I thank him for allowing me to use it.

A great night at Carden Park where the staff were terrific the food excellent and the overall atmosphere outstanding. It was a real pleasure being the Gala Dinner Toastmaster for DHF on this Splendid occasion.
