The Phil Reilly Departure 'Do'
Veteran Tory Boys and Fab Forumites enjoying a well earned pint at The Park Inn. Yes it's none other than the Leader of the Council himself, Paul Watkins, limbering up to punch a hole in that delicious looking pint. Well, its what your right arm is for after all Paul. The chappie on the right is of course Nigel Collor who has been known to whet his whistle on occasion but purely in the interests of social research. They had gathered with a whole brace of people, mostly Forumites, at The Park Inn to enjoy a farewell drink with Phil Reilly, that nimble newshound of the Dover Express. Phil is joining the impressive Kent on Sunday after two and a half years treading the pavements of Dover, and is looking forward ambitiously to a meteoric rise in journalism after being headhunted in spectacular style. Go get 'em Phil.
Out celebrating in the comfortable surrounds of The Park Inn... Vic Matcham, Phil Reilly, Charlie Elphicke, Paul Watkins, and Nigel Collor.
Pugnacious political pugilist Vic Matcham was enjoying a close drink and a chat with Paul Watkins. Wonder what they were cooking up. Is Vic about to cross the floor!!? Is this to be the latest sensation!!? All hugs in pic on right..this shows politico and Dover Loyalty Schemer Roger Walkden with Dover Express journalist Yam Zendera all together in close harmony..at least for now!
