2018 Reunion - initial report

What an excellent reunion with another good turnout! (despite the deteriorating weather!). Thank you to both of our super guest speakers for rounding off the day. Thanks also to AGE UK for their MAJOR contribution to the success of the day. Good to see so many retired staff in attendance (in no particular order Baxter, Burrows, Mann, Lawrence, Lawson, Hutchinson, Childs, Rudge and Povoas). Photos and report to follow. Spare a thought for our founder Dennis and wife Stephanie making the round trip from Wales with a wagon load of memorabilia
Here's the arrival of a most welcome guest, Doc Burrows, who recently celebrated his 90th birthday 

CLICK/TAP HERE for a few photos from the lens of former pupil Mike Ratcliff
