Sunday 21st Feb
We all met at Slater's in Manchester city centre to select the uniforms that we would be wearing for formal engagements during their visit to Georgia. After being shown various different colours and designs, everybody's favourite was the grey pin stripe option. It was great that everybody's mind was thinking alike (and to be honest, the other options made us look like flight attendants!). The men chose a single breasted suite with three button's and the ladies opted for trousers instead of skirts.
We also opted for short sleeve shirts in anticipation of the lovely sunny spring weather in the deep south.
After Slater's, Roy led us all to Panama Hatty's for lunch where we all got our heads together and started planning what we need to do before our departure date of 14th April, which although seems a long way off, is rapidly approaching us. We had a look through our Powerpoint presentation on Steve's laptop and everybody was happy with how it looked with just a few tweaks needed for the final draft.
The next meeting date was set for Saturday 13th March, again at Slater's where we will be trying on our new uniforms.
