The Annual Dinner and Awards Evening returned after a break in 2021 due to Covid so there were twice as many medals to hand out on an evening with glittering trophies and cyclists looking glamourous out of lycra.
Despite the absence of our President, the evening carried on in the Anerley tradition of celebrating our glorious history but also making gentle fun of each other with some cross toasting. Once the raffle in aid of Cancer Research was over and we had eaten our fill it, was time for the trophies.
