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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
