The Family at New Year 2008/9

The whole family last got together for Christmas and New Year in Sydney in 2003 and again in 2006. In 2007 Herry, Ayako and Kei went to Seville but in 2008, the family again came together, first in Hamburg and then the full team including Thomas's children Nathan and Rebecca, had week together at Lisheen Castle in Ireland .

Thereafter, all except Prue and Thomas and his children came back to London and held a 'Lawford Gathering' in Hampshire to meet as many old friends as could be found. About 45 people came to a lunch at the Upland Park Hotel, Droxford including family, godparents*, friends and their children and grandchildren. Prue was present via a Skype video link
