2017 Reunion - first report

After lunch, musical chairs before the talks.
Far left John Lawson and in the orange jacket
 our good friend Trish Kenyon (Actor Joe Melia's sister).
Many thanks to Roger Povoas and Bob Childs
for volunteering their time to entertain us.

WOW! What a turn out for this year's special 20th reunion! 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 cbsleicester@gmail.com). 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 www.thurnbycourt.blogspot.co.uk)..

Thanks once again to all at Age UK for excellent catering & ensuring that the day ran smoothly.
A full report should appear in the next OWT.

2016 Reunion - First Report

 
Wonderful turnout as expected. Ex pupils and staff were well represented. The oldest ex-pupil first attended in 1936 (you do the maths!). Age UK once again served us well throughout the day and Bob Childs kept everyone entertained after lunch. A fuller report will appear in the next OWT. Here's a photo taken by Chris Pyrah.
