The annual Spring Dinner, held this year at the Imperial War Museum, London, proved to be another successful event for the SIA.
During the proceedings, SIA Chairman Chris Hall paid tribute to three stalwart members of the Technical Committee, Mike Brooks (Gelpke & Bate), Jeff Gill (Hayman Group) and Graham Morris (Alcohols Limited), all of whom are retiring in the coming weeks and all of whom will be missed by the Association.
Linking the social side of the Association’s activities with the practical aspects of solvent usage, members were interested to see the results of the use of solvents in restoring display items such as a Second World War tractor and Rolls Royce Merlin engine.
The next key event in the SIA diary will be the Annual General Meeting which will be held on the 19th October.
A big thank you to all of those who supported the event.
