Sadly however, for the very first time in living memory, the School were not represented at the occasion, a matter that will be surely be rectified for 2018.
The guest of honour and main speaker was His Honour, retired Judge Robert Moore. Robert has been a huge supporter of the Association over many years and it was a pleasure to hear him speak so eloquently particularly making reference to the ubiquitous nature of Old Edwardians in all walks of life. Our thanks go out to Robert for his speech and continued support.
As always the food was excellent, service exemplary and the company even better. The raffle and subsequent auction conducted by the ubiquitous Chris Mower, raised much needed funds for the Association which in turn are used to support the continuing endeavours of the School and its students.
A heartfelt thank you must also be extended to the Association committee who worked hard behind the scenes to make sure the dinner was a success and of course to Nicol Garnon, who yet again, spent most of the evening sneaking up on people and photographing them.
The 2018 dinner is already scheduled for Maundy Thursday at Baldwin's. Please try to attend and encourage friends, colleagues and contemporaries to come along too. We would like to break the 150 barrier or perhaps slightly ambitiously the 200 mark. Baldwins assure me that they do have lots of chairs.
See you all next year.
John Parr (1968-75)
