Last night CF members from around the country gathered at the new Revolution bar in Leadenhall Street in the City of London. Karen Allen had organised the event getting the venue, and putting on the food, and a great job she did too. Fellow exec members, Ranil, Matt, Craig, and Mark Clarke attended. Christian sent his apologies as his work wouldn't let him leave to get there as theere were urgent matters to be done for Christmas deadlines!
It was a great opportunity for people to let their hair down and meet the Executive and other CFers. For example I was able to introduce James Morton, who is doing sterling work in Devon and Cornwall to Matt Lewis, who is doing sterling work in Staffordshire. Both James and Matt have come up through the ranks helping out their existing CF Area Chairman, and are helping to create sustainable areas, with a number of different branches.
Drinks events always give an opportunity for new members to come along and meet people in a relaxed environment, and to leave if they don't like it! Fortunately all our new members had a great time, and we were able to put them in touch with other local CFers who are able to keep them updated with what is going on.
