Holt Rugby Football Club held their annual dinner at Pinewoods, where 110 members and guests attended.

The Norfolk Referees' Society presented the Holt club with the Whistler Trophy, in recognition of their being the most hospitable club to referees last season.

The Master of Ceremonies, Roger Dakin, introduced the speakers with a professional aplomb. The club was honoured by the attendance of the president of the Rugby Football Union, John Owen, who proposed the toast to Rugby Football and Holt RFC.

Club captain Neil Sturman replied in a witty manner and stated what an honour it was for him to be in that position. The club president, Iain Macbrayne, introduced the guests and Roger Dakin responded. The evening was rounded off with a successful auction conducted by Roger.
