2006, Get-Together of 1971 Leavers
There was a gathering of the 1971 leavers this year at the Burley Manor Hotel in the New Forest. This was a quieter meeting than some in the recent past, but we still managed to sit down to dinner on the Saturday night with 22.
Amongst those present were Richard Anderson, organizer, Peter Sloan, John Clause, Steve Bath, Myf Adams (née Gregson) Diana Davis (née Fitzgerald) and of course our wives, husbands and partners who we now consider to be very
much part of the group.
We all met up on Friday night for an informal dinner and a very latenight, and then Saturday was a wonderful day on Steve Bath’s boat. We managed to consume a number of bottles of champagne, which we had brought along for a surprise for the girls. A very good dinner followed at the hotel and then a
few bottles of port later!

I cannot emphasise how important our partners are to all of the proceedings and I often find myself talking to a partner and saying 'of course you remember Harry Aggar's path only to realise they never attended the
If you have not managed to organise a get-together of your year, do it in 2007. It is very simple and you will be amazed how the word spreads and the numbers increase. Go to the Burley Manor Hotel in the New Forest. The food is excellent and the surroundings are very 'Allhallows' and they are totally
geared up for our type of function. You will not regret the effort or the place and I look forward to reading about your weekend!
