On Friday 24th March we were delighted to welcome over 70 people to Deans’ Hall for the Annual Old Berkhamstedians Dinner.
We were joined this year by Graham Burchnall, Patrick Cowie, Adrian Forster, Will and Steph Gunary, Martin Pett, Dave and Liz Richardson, all of whom had retired last summer after at least 20 years service at the School, as well as Gavin Laws who stands down this summer as Chair of Governors. We were also delighted to be joined by Ant Theodossi leading up a table of Fives players, ranging from those who left in 2020 all the way back to those who left in 1949 – our thanks to them for supporting the event.
Prosecco and canapes flowed whilst old cinefilm footage played in the background, before everyone took their seats for dinner, presentations and speeches. Brigitta Case thanked everyone for coming and explained her vision for the OBs, after which Richard Backhouse gave an update on the state of the School, its successes, constraints and future developments, all of which was gratefully received by the attendees.
Our thanks to everyone who attended the dinner and we look forward to seeing you back next year.
