The Council for Business with Britain (CBB) held its annual Christmas get-together on December 10, 2009 at Westminster House – the residence of H.E. Dr. Peter Hayes, British High Commissioner.

This evening of community carols organized by the CBB for its members, non-members, family and friends, was accompanied by the Elizabeth Moir School Choir and also featured a guest performance by Mrs. Dinali David. The programme consisted of members and family reading some Christmas selections for the enjoyment of those present.
