Master's Update VII - February 2016
This year’s children’s Christmas party held on Sunday 13th December 2015 proved to be a riotous affair. Once again, the party was generously hosted by Investec, in the restaurant of their Gresham Street offices. On arrival the children were welcomed by the elves who distributed plush Christmas badges to each of them depicting Santa, snowmen, reindeer and elves. The party had started!

“ …..And gentlemen in England now a-bed
Shall think themselves accurs’d they were not here,
And hold their manhoods cheap whiles any speaks
That ate & drank with us upon this St Damasus day.”(With apologies to William Shakespeare)
