An Afternoon with the Vice Presidents

Billed as an afternoon with our Vice Presidents - or an afternoon with the “Three Vees” as I like to call them - very nearly didn’t take off as the Union Jack Club didn’t have a record of our booking !  However, I’m pleased to say that they pulled out the stops and placed us in the Disney Room on the 23rd floor.
