Nearly 190 guests attended a gala ball to mark the tenth birthday of Hogarths Hotel & Restaurant. The party at the independent family hotel also raised more than £13,000 for the locally-based Brain Tumour Charity. BBC WM presenter Jimmy Franks compered the evening in the William Suite and marquee with Craig Manchester of The Commitments providing the entertainment. Helena and Andy Hogarth, who took over the venue in 2004, gave a presentation about the changes which have taken place at the hotel over the last 10 years.
