Central Region Academy Awards Night and Buckinghamshire dates for you diary……
Friday 24 February 2012
On the 3rd February 2012 the Junior Academy held their annual presentation evening at Bury Farm’s Gala Show.
It was an interesting evening and included a course walk with Di Lampard for all of the members followed by great hospitality from Bury Farm regardless of the cold and the failing lights.
We raised funds by means of an auction and raffle to help towards sending teams to the annual Inter Academy Team Show in August.
Our thanks go to all that kindly supported the event. A special thank you goes out to Laura Cutter of Equilibrium who generously gave prizes to all our winners.
