Lesley Reynolds Joins The Committee

We are pleased to announce that Lesley Reynolds has agreed to join the committee, once elected, with effect from the AGM in February 2020. She will replace Alan Draper as secretary, who has decided to stand down and not seek reelection in 2020.

 

Lesley was the Deputy Head of Derby Grammar until earlier this year and has since retired. She will be an asset to the committee and the society as a whole and we welcome her knowledge, drive and expertise in so many areas.

 

We thank Alan for all he has done for the society as its secretary, which is sometimes a thankless and time-consuming task. We know he will be spending more time in Spain now and we wish him well and good health.

Class of 1950 Reunion 2019

Report of the meeting held at The Five Lamps on Tuesday 17th September 2019

On this occasion 10 of the group made the meeting (That is 9 from the class of 1950 plus Barrie Sheard – our adopted friend and the OD Archivist.)

The meeting was totally informal and we all enjoyed a couple of hours of good conversation accompanied by some excellent food and drink. The food almost did not happen since the ‘Five Lamps’ were catering for a large funeral party (of 100+) and we were almost half an hour into the meeting before they decided that it was possible for us to order food!

We received apologies for absence, greetings and good wishes from ten of our number who were unable to join us. I trust that it was their intention for me to pass this on to the group. Anyway, this confirms the active interest of 20 of us – so we stand a chance of making double figures at meetings for a bit longer. Hopefully, this list will provide some feeling of contact across the group so please feel free to make contact with anyone yourself.
