Many members will have already received a circular letter, reminding them that it is some 40 years since the 7th had to disband, due to the advent of the 6th form college. A considerable number of us are therefore in our dotage, (I am 85 !) and I am sure many of us will wish to meet up with other scout members who they have not seen for many years.
Recently had an e-mail from tony martin (60-67) to say he had met up with john carter (59-66) in the rain forests of Borneo, and they had not seen each other since 1966 !
On Saturday 22nd November the O.C.S. have their annual dinner at the college, and it is hoped that most of those who read this, will make a note in their diary to attend. If you are not an member, you are still welcome to attend . Get in touch with other ex-7th members, and have a ‘grand re-union’.
Tickets are still £ 21 each – you will be able to download a dinner booking form, ‘ere long. There are now several hotels & b. & b’.s in the area, so an overnight stay should not be a problem, as long as you book in good time. I look forward to seeing you on Saturday 22nd November.
