Reunion 2018 was a great success!

Over 100 people attended the event at the Masonic Hall on Saturday 6 October. The turnout was the highest it has been for a few years. Thank you to everyone for coming and making the occasion the fun evening it was.

Thanks must be given to Julie and her team at the Masonic Hall for the buffet and for generally looking after us.

On the night it was mentioned four Committee members have stepped down. Billy Lamont and Steven Brayshaw stepped down at the last Reunion in 2016 after being involved for 20 years but have remained in the background until any new people can properly take over. Sue Tinsley left the Committee in May 2017 for family reasons and Ronnie Gilbody resigned in January this year due to health problems. Thanks were given to all of these people for all their hard work in planning and organising past Reunions.

Tony Wright asked the crowd if they wanted these events to continue in the future. By an overwhelming show of hands, it was clear the majority do! However Tony requested that if anyone is interested in helping or has any feedback/ideas they should contact him via the website.

After a short meeting between Billy, Steven and Tony later in the evening, it was announced Bob Bayley would be coming on board to assist Tony with arranging future Reunion events. Welcome to Bob!

Following the raffle, there was plenty of opportunities for everyone to chat and catch-up. What a fabulous night. Roll on 2020!
