A great time was had by all at the mcphersons Christmas party despite severe weather conditions and disruptions to the day. All was going well until arrival at the Brick Wall Hotel where the hungry accountants were informed that the whole area had no electricity. Extra drinks were served, followed by cold starters. Just as hope was diminishing, on came the lights (and ovens) and a lovely hot dinner was served. But, that wasn’t the end…for the poor people relying on public transport to get home, a tree fell on the line outside Bexhill leaving them stranded for hours. Luckily all worked out in the end and everyone got home for Christmas – just!
