2020 Reunion



On the Thursday leading up to the Reunion, following the PM's announcement, it was decided by all concerned that the Reunion should go ahead. It was another success. A full report will appear in our next newsletter. Photos of the event are now on our Facebook page. To view them CLICK/TAP HERE (Note you do not need to be a member of Facebook to see the photos). Our thanks to everyone who came - including our speaker Bharat Patel, who kept us enthralled and entertained with his potted autobiography (his book on the same subject "Indian Takeaway" is still on sale - with ALL proceeds going to the Hope Against Cancer charity - see their website https://www.hopeagainstcancer.org.uk/store/ for details of how to obtain your copy). Thanks also to John Hames for his help on the day - stepping in at short notice to help with setting up, packing away (& taking a few photos which are on our Facebook page). Once again Age UK Leicestershire did us proud with the catering and arrangements on the day. Our special thanks go to Antony Foster (Age UK's man on the ground) who has given us tremendous support over the years with our reunions. He is moving on to pastures new. Finally a big thank you to Stephanie, who puts in a lot of work on our behalf behind the scenes as well as running the raffle on the day.
