Award Ceremony Held on Zoom Under Lockdown
The HCC Annual Awards Ceremony was postponed this year due to Lockdown. The event that is usually held with a bar close by, was rescheduled to take place in Zoom and everyone was encouraged to bring their own drinks. It was a fun night with 24 people attending.
The serious awards were announced by Phil and Tamra announced the voted for by the public awards.
This was followed by a fiercely contested quiz and a round of treasure hunt where we all had to find and wear a hat.
Anne-Lise won the quiz and Ainle got the award for the best hat!
