LisaPubMeetupOctober2014

October Pub Meetup Proves Big Hit

With autumn kicking in and the warm summer we so well enjoyed only a distant memory, the year kicked off with another LISA meetup at the Old Bank of England . As some 40 or so alumni and a current students met for drinks.

Arguably one of the more popular pub meetups in LISA’s young history, the club room wasn’t big enough and we spilled out into the remaining parts of the OBE, as people chatted and enjoyed many beverages, to the later hours of the evening.

A fantastic start for the year and everyone already looking forward to the annual Xmas dinner!

Sadly the photographer couldn’t make it……!
