OUS Leeds & Bradford - Annual Dinner, May 2015

Some 16 members and guests sat down for their Annual Dinner at Devonshire Hall with the guest speaker Dr Nicholas Harberd of St John’s College, Sibthorpian professor of Plant Science.

The meal was most acceptable (soup or tapas, lamb, salmon or Mushroom Wellington, chocolate mousse or pear and almond tart).

After this, our guest - who grew up in Adel, Leeds before he went to Cambridge - told the assembled members about the problems a scientist like himself has in a world class university like Oxford - a fascinating 15 minute summary of his work.

The vote of thanks was given by Ms J Riley.

Peter Palmer - Secretary, OUS Leeds & Bradford
