Henry Cohen, who qualified in South Africa 26 years ago, celebrated his 20th year of practicing Dentistry in Redbourn
by inviting patients who had been to see him in Sept 1988 and had remained with the practice to a braai (barbecue) . He thanked his patients for their loyalty and support as well as the 14 staff. including two associates and 4 hygienists for making the practice such an enjoyable working enviroment.
The 150 guests were entertained with a violonist and were served with Boerewors( Farmers sausage) rolls that were prepared and barbecued by the Bok and Rose Butchery in St Albans.
The whole evening had a South African flavour with the guests being served biltong (dried spiced beef), South African wines as well as typical South African deserts such as Koeksisters and Melktart.
For once the weather behaved itself and the guests had a wonderful evening in Cumberland Park opposite the practice.
Mr Cohen thanked the Local village council , The Bull Pub for all their help, the scouts and Methodist Church for their support for the evening.
He encouraged the people in the village to support all the local services such as the physiotherapists, osteopath, lawyers, beauticians, and businesses as the village could only benefit from having these services available to all.
