We Need you to Join Us

We are looking for members to join the committee in 2019

Your committee is looking for new blood to join its ranks in 2019! If you have some time to spare to help the society grow then we could really use your help.

As a committee we look after society accounts, meet regularly throughout the year and plan events for our members which we hope will attract them to join in the activities with us.

You could be the person we are looking for; vibrant, outgoing, a good planner with a genuine interest in the society and its development.

If you are interested then please contact our secretary Alan Draper who will let you have more information.

Our Annual General Meeting is on 5th February 2019 at 5pm at the Derby Grammar School when we will be electing the new committee. Look forward to seeing you there.

Another Piece of New News

Early December 2018 saw your three OD archivists enjoying a meal and a pint during their Christmas lunch get together. Usually meeting informally approximately three times a year future strategy is discussed and planned for the following year, so that each particular specialist can add their expertise where needed.

For example the recently completed research about Percy Heylyn Currey (1875 to 1882) who as architect was chosen to design and supervise the construction of the School Chapel has been placed onto the new website for all to read and enjoy. If you wish to see IT working at its very best this new site is a must. (The pages actually turn on your click!)

Shown on the accompanying photograph taken at their working lunch are from left to right -Maurice Cass (1961-1966), Barrie Sheard (1945-1950) and Andrew Polkey (1961-1966)

It goes without saying your support in recording the school’s very long history by submission of old B&W photographs, leaflets, memorabilia of all sorts (Cadet Corps, School Sports Colours, old copies of ‘The Derbeian’, souvenirs, diaries, school reports or similar) are always welcome.
