Thank you to everyone who came to the HfP Christmas party on Tuesday.  I hope you all had a great night with interesting conversations about Avios etc.

Let’s see how soon we can repeat this.

Until then, here are a few pictures of the night – please do email us with any other good photos and we can add them in.

Thanks again to Melia Hotels International for their sponsorship of the event which, having seen the final drinks bill, is going to be more generous than we and they initially thought.


The Dry Martini bar at the Melia White House proved to be the ideal venue – just the right size and with a very long bar.












Sadly we didn’t video Rob’s speech so those of you who didn’t attend are saved from that ….
