The Diplomats golden oldies rugby team that went to the 2010 Golden Oldies Festival in Sydney had a great wrap-up function at the residence of Tom and Shirley Wills in Vaimaanga before Christmas.

Four new members have joined the Diplomats team who will meet again today for the cabinet meeting with caucus at the Fishing Club at 5.30pm. See you there.
