Contents The Gallery Past Reunions 2004 Reunion
The venue for the 2004 Reunion was a marquee on Kett Lawn and the focus of the evening was the 1950s/1960s. Around 150 past-pupils and members of staff from those years were present. Sadly something happened later to spoil the euphoria of a good evening - the PA system and speakers were stolen at some time between 1215 and 0830 on Sunday (about £1000-worth of equipment). The Association intends to give the College half of the equipment's replacement cost.
Many thanks to David Spinks and Roger Lincoln for their photos.
Very many thanks to: Alumni Secretary Carol Arnold for organising the event, the College catering staff for a superb barbeque and buffet, Alan Bridges and Philip Wade for organising the raffle, Victoria Musgrave for allowing us back onto the old turf, and all those helpers for assembling and dismantling the venue.
