Numbers attending the reunion each year have increased considerably,

Chairman's Notes. Posted 1st February 2017
From 1994 to the present day we have had some great Reunions we had
308members for our first Reunion in Cheltenham race course and now we
average between 60 and 80 members which after 24years is quite heartening
last year we had to change our buffet arrangements and comments after were
in favour so we look forward to another good night I must once again thank
the committee but especially Neil and his girls for their hard work
through the year. So get your tickets and I will see you on the night.
