After the restricted event in 2021, the 33rd annual branch Christmas Lunch was held on 1st December 2022. Numbers were back to a pre-covid level, as 170 guests attended at the Royal Overseas Club in central London. A drinks reception in the Hall of India was followed by a four course meal served in the Princess Alexandra Hall. In a break with tradition, instead of a speaker the entertainment was a corrosion themed quiz, which was won by the table from CTS Europe. As usual the popular raffle was organised by Jimmy Glynn.
As in previous years, most of the guests stayed on for a while to network before many then transferred to a local public house to continue socialising. Thanks must go to the organising committee, plus sponsors Carboline, Corrodere Academy, PPG Protective and Marine Coatings, Protective Polymers Ltd and Winn & Coales (Denso) Ltd.
