The nineteenth and final dinner of the Friends was arranged by Vicky Wilson and held at North Nibley as in the past. Thirty-six sat down for the meal making it one of the best attended annual dinners. David Wilson gave the keynote presentation rounding up a series of excavations in which various Friends had taken part. These ranged from Cheshire to Gloucestershire and covered a number of moated sites and burial mounds as well as some rarely seen pictures from Wortley.
