The “65 Society” held their 50th anniversary reunion at The Lowry Hotel in Salford just over the River Irwell from Manchester City centre which is easily accessible via a foot bridge.
Fourteen dental graduates attended but there were 9 others who failed to make it, they were Graham Walker, Tony Lavin, Graham Potts, Martyn Spratley, Peter Jordan, Gordon Koledade, John Cooke, Harold Morley and Ann Baker.
Seven members are regrettably deceased; they are Paul Glasberg, Eric Doyle, Dave Conibear, Derek Tinkler, Chris Clifford, Val Baron and Ian Bond.
They started their reunions in 1975 to mark their 10th anniversary and have held them every five years since usually near Manchester except in 2008, when Mike Adey organised an extra reunion, an Alaskan cruise. Mike and his wife Frankie have made their home in British Columbia, Canada.
