Meal and reunion at The Masonic Hall, Mill Road, Wellingborough.   In the picture on the right above, we are standing in the Hall;  the screen behind Robert Gibson is used simply to adjust the size of the room.  The caterer at the Hall will do veggie meals if ordered in advance and similarly will provide an alternative if someone does not eat the chosen main course and wants an alternative - e.g. chicken instead of beef.  He does not have the catering facilities to offer everyone a choice of meals.

The Masonic Hall can be found using the Map
Adjacent to the Masonic Arms is 'The Rising Sun' (Corner of Cannon Street and Mill Rd), see Right
       

 

The Deputy Headmaster of the Wrenn School has agreed, in principle, to our visiting WGS on Saturday the 19th.  Final details will have to wait till nearer the date because Saturday is clearly a busy time for them and there may be problems with car parking.  Something that I'm sure we can solve by meeting up first somewhere else - that's it, we'll have a day trip to WGS - but "remember that you have to wear school uniform on a school trip!"
