BMRA welcomes new board members at AGM

The teams get ready.

Rain didn’t dampen the spirits at the BMRA Golf Day and Summer Dinner. Held at the Mere Resort and Spa near Knutsford, 17 teams took to the green to battle the rain and each other!

This followed the BMRA Annual General Meeting, in which new Board members were welcomed, Dave Weston of John Lawrie Group and Donald Ward of Ward Recycling. 

The golf was won by the team from Benfleet Scrap and SWM & Waste Recycling picked up the booby prize for last place.

The dinner kicked off in style in the Mere Suite, before being interrupted by Singing Waiters, who serenaded the diners with operatic songs.

The singing waiters put guests through their paces
