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.
