50+ Mens Lunch - May 2024

The May 2024 lunch of the 50+ Years group took place at Berkhamsted Golf Club on Thursday 16th May.

After a welcome drink and catch-up, the group moved out into the sunshine for the traditional group photograph (attached), ably overseen by Jonathan Culverhouse (Adders 1964),

Then it was back into the clubhouse for an excellent lunch and more catch-up, followed by an entertaining talk by Sam Mainds (Adders 1964) on his career as a criminal barrister and some of his more interesting cases.

After lunch there was much interest in the House Books from the 50’s and 60’s, kindly made available from the School Archives and then, sadly, it was time to say farewell.

This annual event is open to all those who left Berkhamsted School 50 or more years ago, John Hilsden (Adders 1962) maintains a contact list for all those interested and if you would like to be added to the list and informed of future events, please let him know at
