''So this is Christmas, and what have we done? "
Well at The Hanley we've completed another successful year as evidenced at our recent AGM and in our annual report & accounts, both in terms of financial performance and member endorsement. In a tough market we have continued to win business and to do so in a way which is in the long-term interests of our members .
Less parochially, and much as I prefer to look forward rather than glance back the way, 2010 has had some very pronounced peaks and troughs. The low points include;
... the dullest football World Cup in living memory, punctuated by the droning din of the vuvuzela and hectares of discounted merchandise after Englands puny elimination.
... a dreary General Election, followed by the musical chairs of the coalition formation.
....the inexplicable success of the "comedian" Frankie Boyle

High points must be;
...the rescue of the Chilean miners.
...the gold medal performance of Amy Williams at the winter Olympics
...the Swedish film version of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo
...the Ryder Cup victory at Celtic Manor

No doubt 2011 will unpack it's share of surprises. Meantime may I wish you and yours a happy Christmas and a healthy and prosperous new year.
