Orpington Circle Inauguration Dinner
Yesterday evening, as guests of Paul Hunt, Chairman of the National Liberal Club, at a dinner to launch the Orpington Circle, an organisation of Club members to support Liberal Democrat candidates at by-elections. First picture is Gill Pratt (nee Cheesbrough) who was my right hand in the Commons from 1964 to 1966. She married and moved to Huddersfield and I hadn't seen her for over 40 years. Second picture is of Chris Maines, LibDem candidate for Orpington 5 times, who only missed by 269 votes in 2001; and on my right, David McBride, the present candidate.
