All the staff were able to attend, (although Bethan had to make a somewhat fleeting visit between taking her final bow as Cinderella and then heading back for a photoshoot with the local press!) and I managed to get my previous receptionists - Carwyn, Evie and Lowri - to come along too.
Carwyn is now a fully fledged 'man of the cloth' and is busy caring for his flock just outside Bala. He delighted us all with his tales of coaxing a reluctant donkey into the chapel to star in his Nativity play. Evie is enjoying teaching and seems to keep a cool head and professional attitude with even the most truculent of teenagers. Lowri finished working at the clinic in the summer having graduated with her degree in Business Studies and she was snapped up by the Anglesey County Council.
It was a really enjoyable evening, and I feel privileged to have such a great team at the clinic. I must commend Nant yr Odyn Hotel too (www.nantyrodyn.co.uk) for a thoroughly delicious meal, with very generous portions and a warm, inviting atmosphere. It was a great way to commence the Christmas festivities!
