This was a landmark occasion because it marked the retirement of Derek Blooman after 11 years as Hon Secretary of the OH Club. Derek has been associated with Allhallows and the Club for 51 years since joining the School in 1959 as a junior master and has rightly been described as ‘Mr Encyclopedia’ because of his ability to recall not only the school and subsequent career but also family connections of any OH over the last 50+ years.

Giles Blomfield, Vice President, taking the chair in the absence of the President,  lead the tributes to Derek, who will continue as ‘Aunt Agatha’ and, having been elected an Hon Life Vice President of the Club, will enable the Committee to  continue to benefit from his knowledge and experience.
