    What better on a fine summer's day than meet up with FMI colleagues and friends to raise a glass and take lunch. This was the case on Wednesday 14th June, 2017. Numbers were only 14 due unfortunate illness, but a number said they preferred the smaller intimate gathering. Quite a few jokes and stories of past motor trade experiences were shared around the table. Everyone went home happy particularly those who won raffle prizes. The whole event raised £285 for FMI funds

    For this year's East Anglia Regional event we held a lunch cruise on Riverboat Georgina on the River Cam in Cambridge. 38 Fellows and their guests attended the event and had a splendid time. The day started with a gentle stroll across Jesus Green to the Boat House tavern situated on the Cam and adjacent to the Georgina mooring. Coffees were enjoyed during the reception in the outside seating areas on the decking tiered down towards the river. It was clear from the start that the sun was going to have his hat on and we were in for a good day.
