February 2018 - Happy 10th Birthday Bafa!!!

Friday night found us partying in The Cote to celebrate a milestone in Bafa's short history!  It was preceeded by the AGM, and we were thrilled to see so many of you turn up in time to hear our reports, confirm the committee for another year and show your support for the future of Bafa.  Our thanks go to Peter Baker and Lindsey Graham for leading the evening with words of how it all started and the help recieved from so many.  After the food, Mayor Jon Harvey very kindly cut the cake.  Our Patron, John Bercow was due to visit unfortunately he had to cut his visit to Buckingham short due to family circumstances but he sent his good wishes to all of our members on the occasion of our birthday!
