Annual Reunion

I drove down to the School today. An extra busy event as, I’m chairing the sub-committee for the Old Croydonians’ 2011 celebrations AND attending the reunion as well.

It was a good ‘do’. It was a swelteringly hot day and the decision to change to a different room (that has air-conditioning) was a wise-one especially as it was slightly smaller than what we’re used to.

Numbers were down on last year – slightly – I reckon mid-fifties, but everyone seemed to be enjoying themselves – even more than usual.

The current Chairman, Derek, is stepping down, and this will therefore be his final Reunion in his current role. In fact, Peter, the Secretary is also stepping-down, as is Karen, (his daughter-in-law, who mans the Bar AND Pauline who looks after the catering. Phew! It’s likely that I’ll be nominated for the post of Chairman at the AGM in October, and life will then become more straightforward more complicated even busier!!

A smooth journey home – just two-and-a-half hours. I got in around 11.45pm.
