On behalf of the BSAVA Cymru committee I would like to say a big thank you to the Backroom Band for providing the fantastic ceilidh at Hen Goleg on Friday evening . Everyone enjoyed the dancing and it really got people mingling and added to the great atmosphere . My leg muscles are still paying for it but it was worth it !! Very Best Wishes Georgia
