David paid tribute to Derek Carr, a stalwart of our Reunions for many years and to the late John Towers also a stalwart who had asked his daughters Laura and Jill to place a large tab behind the bar on his behalf. Alan Bloxham was unable to attend due to ill health and David wished him well and also all other Shene Old Boys who were not in the best of health.

David advised attendees of those who had passed on since our last Reunion and they were remembered with a round of applause.

Trevor Day (Trev the Rev) led Happy Birthday and nobody was missed out as David Richardson encouraged the assembly to a special rendition for anybody who was anticipating a Birthday in the next 12 months...............

Thanks were due to Kate Roberts Richardson (David's daughter) and co-host for the day and also Dennis O'Shea the club steward and his team who looked after us admirably. David also mentioned Laurie Kennison, our guide at the School that morning and on many previous occasions. He had taken our groups around the School for many years and had much enjoyed hearing from the Old Boys of days gone by.

Importantly, David introduced John Webster j.webster@mac.com who will be taking over from David when familiar with the routines.

In response John made a presentation of a silver picture frame to David which was much appreciated.

Booked in but unable to attend: (6) David Ball, Trevor Leggett, Eddie Roberts, John Webster, Mike Wise, Colin Winger

David Richardson welcomed the assembled Shene Old Boys and their guests.   This was our 9thReunion since 2002 and just possibly our last.   Unfortunately time is catching up with us. He hoped that those  who had toured the school enjoyed their trip down Memory Lane.   In David's case he could still recall the sound of Brigden’s plimsoll.
Congratulations went to Trevor Griffiths. It was his birthday and David reflected on his possible age and considered that if he was anything like the rest of the assembly he was no youngster.    Hel also mentioned Alan Bloxham who celebrated on the 23rd and also included anyone who had had a birthday in the last 12 months to ensure that nobody felt left out of the celebrations.   Trevor Day had already raised the occasion by leading 'Happy Birthday'.
David's co-host again was his son Grant Richardson who had taken another day off from his duties with the British Army.  He had also helped David last year.   David thanked  Grant and  Dennis O’Shea and his team for looking after us so well.

The buffet lunch was excellent and a considerable amount of photos and memorabilia was on display and provided much discussion
David reminded Old Boys that they can stay informed via our Website www.sheneob.co.uk.    The address was suitably inscribed  on his sweater.   The more astute would have noticed the date discrepancy which he explained by saying that every eighteen months when the Reunion comes round he orders the updated version.   He now had about eight of them and his chums are getting heartily sick of seeing them and they are under no illusions as to his connection to Shene Old Boys.
He hoped that all present would enjoy a very pleasant interlude recalling the days that made us what we are today.

24 Old Boys visited the School prior to the Reunion, as in previous years and were well looked after by Laurie Kennison.

David Richardson welcomed the assembly to the eighth Shene Old Boys Reunion since 2002 and extended a special welcome to the guests. To those who were at the School in the morning, he hoped that they enjoyed their trip down Memory Lane and had now dried away the tears.

David thanked Dennis O’Shea and Dipak Sharma and their teams who looked after us well and gave a special mention to his co-host...his son Grant who had taken a day away from his duties with the British Army.

David offered a few facts regarding the day:

645 invitations were sent out by land/air or e-mail

175 responses were received and those unable to attend conveyed their very best wishes for a good day.

One could only conjecture why 470 people didn’t feel the need to respond. Interestingly, those abroad largely did.

Whichever way one looked at it, our turnout was still impressive and some had travelled considerable distances. It was good to see them and David thanked them for their effort.

David advised the assembly of those who had passed on since our last Reunion.

LARRY ELLIOTT

JAMES MARLOW

KEITH BARWOOD

GEORGE HARTWRIGHT

CHRIS ROEBUCK

JOHN MOFFATT

TED BURTON

DENNIS ELLIOTT

RAY ARGENT

HARRY ABBETT

JOHN (ARCHIE) HARRIS

Ruth Roebuck was in attendance and David hoped that she was not distressed by the mentioning of Chris.

David had been asked by Radio London to talk about Shene school in a series called ‘My School’. The interviewer who was all of 38 years of age had little idea of what had gone before and it was David's job to inform him and his listeners.

The recording was played while the assembly took lunch.

The event was preceded by a tour of the School  by a party of 15 who were well looked after by Laurie Kennison of the School Facilities team.

David Richardson hosted Reunion 2011 ably assisted by Betty O'Leary who acted as Receptionist and Photographer.   David ensured that the best wishes of Old Boys around the world were passed on to the assembly and also listed those who have left us since January, 2008. 

This Reunion's attendance was lower than previously.   Various people had indicated acceptance of the invitation that was not actually taken up.

Once again the venue proved to be a popular choice and David thanked Dennis O'Shea and his team for their excellent service and co-operation.

Attendees were encouraged to update their details on the Current listing and to advise David of other Old Boys in their circle to enable David to follow up and expand the listing.

This change of venue proved to be a popular choice and was notable for the efficiency of the staff who  ensured a very good buffet meal at very reasonable cost.

David Richardson had organised a School tour at 11am for about 70 Old Boys and welcomed a record turn-out for Reunion 2007 at noon in the downstairs Members' Bar at the London Welsh club house.   Betty O'Leary proved an excellent honorary PA for the day and is responsible for the photographs now available in the Photo Gallery and accessible as below. 

The assembly took full advantage of the Spring sunshine and, once again, Old Boys supped and ate at their leisure .   The Exhibition area was even more substantial that that of Reunion 2005 and more than 300 photos were on display with other items of memorabilia.

Photographs can be accessed by double-clicking:

As before Old Boys came from far and wide and Keith Claiden made it from New Zealand, Kish Sadhvani from Hollywood, USA and John (Bob) Reeve from Denmark.   We were also able to welcome two ex-masters, Alan Stephens and Ted Burton.

NB:   Acceptances were received from 119 Old Boys but some were prevented from attending at the last minute

Since the 2002 Reunion more Old Boys have been traced and these were much in evidence at the 2004 Reunion and David Richardson was able to tell of the success of our Website, introduced at the beginning of April, 2003, which has attracted well over 9000 hits at the time of writing.

As before Old Boys had travelled from far and wide and Dick Lee and his wife Lin, also Roy Barnes had made it all the way from the United States.   We were also able to welcome Ron Friggens an ex-Shene master whose red sweater attracted great attention.   This appears to be a talisman according to his ex-pupils although they were assured that it was not the same one........

Once again, many anecdotes were exchanged....and a lot of catching up took place in a short time.

As before, Foxhills proved an excellent venue and once again we were able to display memorabilia to stir the soul, although on this occasion Johnny Towers did not bring the bat he won in the Kew Boys Annual in about 1951.   We were privileged to see it in 2002, but in that condition it is probable it would not have survived another trip from Devon ......!!!!!!!!
