In October 2021, 10 graduates and their partners met for the Covid rescheduled ’45 years since graduation’ reunion.
We met up for a weekend in The Abbey Hotel, Great Malvern. The venue is very conveniently situated in the middle of town. We were also blessed with fine weather.
Friday evening was very informal with us meeting up in the bar. The meeting of friends and colleagues was fantastic.
Saturday morning saw a group of us go for a wander on the Malvern Hills, up behind the hotel. We were also able to wander around the town and start Christmas shopping.
In the evening, we had a private dining room for our gala dinner. We had a superb evening. The room was buzzing all night with the chatter between us all. The atmosphere in the room was full of friendliness and reminiscences. We of course continued in the bar until the early hours.
Before the bar though, we managed a group photo on the stairs.
Those there were :- John and Cathy Atkins, Neal and Robin Barnard, Rob and Chris Chate, David and Mary Cockbain, Jon and Marianne Cowpe. Steve and Roz Doman, Jill and John Jagger, Iain and Christine Mackie, John and Sharon Rollinson, Ken and Janet Wallace.
It was unanimous that the weekend had been a great success and we are looking forward to our next reunion, our 50th, in 2025.
Iain Mackie and David Cockbain.
