Everyone attending received a commemorative coaster as a gift (see below) and were entertained by talks from ex-pupil Roger Povoas & retired teacher Bob Childs. The coasters could be put to the test on the day either from the complementary tea & coffee or at the honesty bar. (Anyone wanting to purchase a coaster (price £2 + p&p) can email On sale this year were Bob Childs' book about the history of the school post 1976 plus a new publication from our treasurer Brian Screaton, detailing the long-forgotten Thurnby Court (anyone who missed the chance to purchase a copy of Brian's well received book can still do so online at

Thanks once again to all at Age UK for excellent catering & ensuring that the day ran smoothly.
