The year has kicked off with barely a bump in the road and being back at work you realise that nothing much has changed. Except our attitudes, starting the year off motivated and excited about whatever 2019 will bring – we wish everyone a happy and prosperous New Year.
Reflecting on 2018 makes me realise that we achieved much more than expected. The branch held a total of eight technology evenings on various exciting topics. Our training day held in November was very well attended and I feel confident that we all learnt something new. From the social perspective, our golf day held at Jackal Creek was a resounding success and the year-end function at Parkers Comedy Club ended 2018 with much laughter.
2019 promises to be a year full off technology evenings, golf events, ladies tea and more. I look forward to seeing you all there.
