Christmas comes early for the Hulme group!

Fixing a date that everyone can make for a Christmas night out is always tricky and it was the last day in November this year for the Hulme group. But we celebrated in style at Blonde restaurant and even managed to kidnap our favourite computing officer to join us. Christmas dinner 2018[/caption]
