At very short notice the class of 1974 held a mini-reunion – 45 years on – at WPCC of the 15th August 2019.
19 of us made it for what turned out to be a fantastic catch up over a few drinks and a first rate meal courtesy of Chris Boyes and the team at WPCC. Much banter followed the first couple of rounds and we laughed often. It was really good to see everyone on fine form and, I should add, in showroom condition. Perhaps the most telling thing was that, to the knowledge of the group , there have no recorded losses since our 40th. Quite a feat we thought.
We missed all who were not able to attend and drank to the good health of a group that supports the view that this group was among the school’s finest vintages.

The picture above attests to the fine shape the group is in. A list of those who managed to attend is below.
We look forward to our 50th in 2024 when we hope to see everyone there.
Many thanks to all who made it and to Chris Boyes for hosting us.
