In the splendour of the Strangers Dining Room of the Palace of Westminster, against the backdrop of the sun setting on the Thames on a magnificent September evening, about seventy members of The Churchill Centre (UK) and their guests gathered to celebrate the greatest parliamentarian of recent times.

There were speeches by The Rt. Hon. Nicholas Soames MP, and by Lord Watson of Richmond, thus ensuring that both Houses and both the Conservative and Liberal parties (for whom Churchill served as an MP) were represented.

Lord Marland of Odstock, the new Chairman of The Churchill Centre (UK) gave an eloquent of vote of thanks and spoke of his vision for the Churchill Centre going forward.

The family was well represented, but the undoubted star of the show was a radiant Lady Soames. The membership wished her a very happy ninetieth birthday, and she left to a rousing three cheers.
