Australia Day Service and Luncheon

Sunday, 25 January saw 27 B-AS members and guests make their way to Sherborne Abbey to celebrate Australia Day in a service led by Canon Eric Woods. The Canon did an excellent job of welcoming and including the party in the celebration and also, very generously, hosting the Society at the Vicarage for pre-lunch drinks. This was followed by a very successful lunch at the Eastbury Hotel where Professor Christina Slade, Vice-Chancellor, Bath Spa University gave a very stimulating address and guests enjoyed a two-course lunch with Australian wines.
