A sad task indeed, but one which we feel our members appreciate.
In the future, where possible, we will add an obituary with a photo of any Old Derbeian who passes, subject to permission from the surviving family or next of kin, of course.
The new page can be found in the members’ area and we feel the design is far better suited to the subject matter.
The date for the Annual Dinner has now been set as Saturday 22nd June 2019 at The Grange Banqueting Suite, Burton Road Derby.
The new date in June rather than November, as in previous years, is to hopefully attract more members and guests and also allow younger members of the society together with students, former students and staff of DGS to be able to attend.
Please make a note in your diary and further information will be posted nearer the date.
A lively meeting for the AGM and the first convening of the committee going forward for 2019. Nice to see DGS represented by Head of Sixth Form, Karen Stebbings, and our two pupils from the school representing the society.
Much was discussed about the future of the society and its events etc. which will be sent out to the membership in due course. Thanks to the committee members who volunteered to complete another year in their respective offices, we know its a labour of love, but it is well appreciated by all in the society.
