Dad's 70th Birthday Party, Swindon - April 16th, 2005

We had managed to gather the immediate family together in Swindon to celebrate Dad's impending 70th birthday. We started off in the bar for a few pre-dinner drinks, then had dinner and finally retired back to the bar. As you can imagine with any Bowen celebration it was a sober and quiet affair and all were tucked up in bed well before 3am the next morning.
