Re-Openers Lunch

TheWycombe Re-openers lunch was held this year on 17 March and was attended by 16 Seniors. As always it was well organised by Sally Gordon Boyd. It is always nice to meet and chat to old and new friends.

We were very pleased to see Lady Elizabeth Butler Sloss and Lady Elspeth Howe who had taken time from their busy lives to come and join us for lunch.

It is hoped that more people will attend the next lunch as it is the 70th anniversary of the reopening of Wycombe Abbey. It will be held on 9 May 2016, which was the date of the re-opening in 1946.

The lunch will be at the Institute of Civil Engineers, One Great George Street, just off Parliament Square, as usual. We will meet at 12-12.30, with time for a photograph before a 1pm lunch. We hope to also receive Headmistress Rhiannon Wilkinson as a guest.

Please get in touch with Sally if you came to the School either term in 1946 and would like to attend, at
