The sun is out at last and we are looking ahead to the forthcoming Reunion Drinks in London on Thursday May 23rd. This year, in an attempt to streamline our marketing, we had decided not to send out hard copies of the invitation but to email them….unfortunately, some software gremlins decided to scupper our best-laid plans and instead of BCC’ing everyone, sent out a large batch of emails with multiple addresses! Luckily and purely thanks to our wonderful IT dept, we were able to recall most of the erroneously sent emails. Not good and I was extremely embarrassed. We have however, had a healthy number of responses and it will undoubtably be a lovely evening.
I attach the invite below
Richard Martin had a sucessful hip operation in March and we are very much looking forward to welcoming him back to school soon. He has not been idle and has been fuiously blogging from hom with news of engagements, marriages, births and deaths. What would we do without him!
We are also very excited about a new digital archive which is being launched within the next couple of weeks. Initially we are putting up photos and some documents for you to see and, for a small administration fee, to order. I will let you know login details as soon as we have it up and running.
We are also in the process of organising small, year-group based reunions in the Autumn. This comes after requests from a couple of Alumni who have lost touch with class-mates and would love to have a get-together – either in a local restaurant or at their home. We would be more than happy to help organise and contribute towards the food and drinks. If this is something you would like to do for a small (or larger!) group of friends, let me know and email me on firstname.lastname@example.org.
Until then, enjoy this late burst of Spring, keep safe and keep us in the loop with everything that you are all up to.
All the very best
