February 17 - Richard's 70th Birthday

The Celebrations for my 70th Birthday on 2nd Feb 17 started in Jan 17 and will undoubtedly go on until at least Aug!

First Party was on 19th Jan 17 when Fujitsu threw a Surprise Party on behalf of the Prince's Trust
The TechMarketView people bought me a cake at the TMV Team Meet on 25th Jan 1`7
At the Prince's Trust Leadership Dinner at the Hilton on 31st Jan 17, I was presented with a 'Thankyou Award' as I stood down from the board.
I had an amazing number of cards. Thank you. And nearly 700 good wishes from the The Archers Appreciation Facebook Group!
A cake from Sarah!
