Warm welcome for 1997-99 leavers
The leavers of 1997-99 returned to the College for their 20 Year Reunion on a glorious warm spring evening. Current students gave the guests a tour of new and refurbished areas of the College and then everyone gathered on the lawn for drinks.
Over 60 OEs and guests were joined by current and former members of Common Room, including Paul Williams (Second Master), Carol Creevey, Fi and Jud Drinkall, Roger Gill, Mike Hampshire, Mike Hobbs, Helen and Chris Keevil, Mike Oliver, Norman Rice, Lorna Vickers, Rob Worrall and David Young. OEs came from far and wide, with two flying in from Nigeria and the USA respectively.
After a curry supper in Main Hall, Paul Williams gave an update on the latest developments and achievements, together with a presentation of views and interiors from around the College. Karen Doyle, Education Trust Director, then talked about the College's capital campaign to build a new centre for excellence, The Mermaid.
Guests also enjoyed a slide show of photos from their time at the College, as well as a display of additional photos, programmes of drama productions and other ephemera from their era, courtesy of Archivist, Rebecca Jallot.
