Christmas lunch in York – Caroline Hirst writes:

Planning to venture over the North York Moors in the middle of December is always a bit touch-and-go for me in case there is a risk of snow. However, this year winter has been fairly mild. It was nevertheless on a cold and very wet 12th of December that the Yorkshire Translators met once again for a warm and friendly Christmas lunch in York at Reina (, a Turkish restaurant down by the river.

The lunch was very well-attended with 34 translators (and friends) working into and from a wide range of languages coming from all parts of Yorkshire. These social events are always very enjoyable because they give the opportunity to get to know different people a little better and sometimes to discover common interests.

The delicious food made a nice escape from the rain outside and conversations around the table were enthusiastic and animated. Thanks very much to Charlotte and Paul, YTI Coordinators, for organising this lovely annual lunch to start the festivities of the Christmas period.
