Thanks to the good graces of Sir Bob Neill, MP, and Gareth Bacon, MP, this year’s Annual Dinner, held at the House of Commons on the 11th January. The Guest of Honour was Val McDermid, one of today’s most respected writers of crime fiction and crime fact. The second speaker was our own Nicholas “Birthday Boy” Utechin.
The Tony Howlett Award for outstanding service to the Society was presented to Judi Ellis.
