Everyone will have received the various emails from Adrian Gates that relate to the reunion he has planned for us on Saturday 21st September this year; I deliberately refrain from mentioning the venue where we will be meeting for reasons that are - sadly - all too obvious these days. Those who have booked their accommodation and therefore intend to be there are listed below; half a dozen, or so, of us will be attending solo whereas the rest will be accompanied by their wives/partners. Should there be anyone else out there who now, at this late stage in the arrangements, decides he would like to join us then please contact me via this website "Contact" link; I will then pass on your details to Adrian.

I send my appreciation to Adrian for his hard work and look forward to meeting everyone there on the day

Adrian Gates, Alan Ottaway, Andy Pascoe, Bill Morley, Brian Spurway, Dave Cross, Dick Bingham, Geoff Tomsett, Jack Squires, John Catley, John Taylor, Martin McArthur, Mike Johnson, Mike Quick, Mike Stanley, Norman Armiger, Robert Longhurst, Ted Peto, Tom Cowen, Tony Williams.

It would be great if a group photo - like the interactive one below - could be taken on the day; I could then upload it and put names to faces. So, if anyone has the means of taking such a shot inside the hotel - with or without flash - I would very much appreciate your bringing your camera along.

2011 Reunion photograph

I'm leaving this photo of those of us who attended the 2011 reunion here on this page so that, as time flies by, memories can be re-kindled and faces put to names. It remains 'interactive', so click on this thumbnail (or the 'Enlarge...' message below) then place your cursor on a face and 'Hey Presto' up will come the name.Enlarge...
