2020 captured in pictures
The Michelham Priory Lodge social committee social events in 2020.
Our first social event of 2020 was our Valentine's dinner held at the Cottage restaurant Hailsham. The evening was enjoyed by many of our members, accompanied by their friends and family. We were treated to good food, one or two drinks and this fun evening helped raise a lot of money for our charities.
