So on the 3rd of February it was time for the members of The Gym Gym to get dressed up for our annual ball- Dawns Fawreddog Y Gym Gym. Based in The Thistle Hotel, at 7 o clock it was time to head over.
Greeted with a glass of bubbly on arrival, it was nice to see everyone so dressed up. A photographer had been set up for the duration of the night, where groups of friends could go and have professional photos taken. Of course we had a go- photo’s below! The three course meal was absolutely delicious. -Roasted tomato & pepper soup with pesto croutons, Breast of Corn-fed Chicken with Dauphinois Potatoes, and Creme Brûlée served with homemade shortbread, and yes it tasted as good as it sounds. Mmmm.
Following the meal, it was a chance to have a photo with friends before the awards. Every year the Welsh Society hosts ‘Awards’ in the ball for different categories.Categories included -Lookalikes, Picture of the Year, Best fancy dress of the Year, ‘Quote’ of the Year, Hunk of the Year, and many more. The award ceremony was .. Entertaining, as it had both a funny side, but also a slight more serious side awarding people who helped out a lot for the society..
The night ended in Revs, with more champagne, dancing, and.. a few more drinks. :)
