St George’s Day and the Season of Spring …
… was the toast at the annual Daniel Connal Breakfast this morning.
Le Talbooth in Dedham, surrounded by beautiful spring flowers, provided the perfect venue and a delicious breakfast.
Partner, Jonathan Dennis, welcomed our guests and gave a short speech, ably assisted by Associates Jonathan Rensink, Richard Bedford and Paul Coleman.
And then to the serious business of the day – announcing the winner of our annual poetry competition! As always we had some inspired entries but this year it was, (drumroll, please), Will Parrick of Boydens Estate Agents, who took the prize! That English A level paying dividends at last!
On a March morning early and bright
We have cause this poem to write
To state we’re not shy
To give our reply
And gratefully accept your invite.
To your breakfast we really look forward
Like to go? Our answer is “Sure would”!
If our diary was full
Then some strings we would pull
To re-arrange our appointments so we could.
This verse is our intentions-conveyor
To inform you generous surveyors
That we will be there
To talk, eat and share
This wonderful occasion; hooray-a!
