Another well-attended lunch (yes, we took over Marco's again!) and lots of new faces.  Welcome to all.
Not just one but three speakers, including Exeter Pound, David from #Devon_Hour, the Maynards School.  And lunch even became more glamorous when Natalie Andrews gave a beautiful rendition of "Fly Me To The Moon".
