On the Friday night it was ‘nice to see you, to see you nice’ as the assembled agents and their partners played ‘The Generation Game’. After a series of fun-packed games including cake decorating and a music quiz, and some that Brucie didn’t deem suitable for family viewing like blindfold shot drinking, there were only two teams left with a chance of winning the much-coverted hamper full of prizes. Unfortunately it was friend against friend as Suzy and her boyfriend Diarmuid’s team faced off against a team including Isabel, Ian and his fiancee Sandy.
Even more unfortunate than that, the last round was a dance off. The Chillisauce crew are no funky movers and the thought of having to dance on stage in front of the assembled masses brought all of them out in a cold sweat.
Diarmuid, who danced with all the grace of a drunken crane fly, temporarily disabled the instructor by stamping on her foot as the rest of the team jumped around like a middle-aged S Club 7. Isabel and Ian’s team then tried to up the ante by unleashing some moves that would have John Travola turning in his grave, if he was dead.
The crowd went wild, but crowned Suzy’s team the winners. They were delighted to get their hands on the luxury hamper which included such superb goodies as a chocolate santa, cheese and a clock radio.
The following morning tree planting at Bushey Golf Club had been arranged, but as the weather was terrible and the golf course resembled a lake, it was cancelled. However, the local press had turned up to cover the tree planting so Suzy’s winning team from the quiz were handed bright pink fork and trowls and forced out into a monsoon for the gratifcation of the Hertfordshire paparazzi!
