Hello All,

Firstly it's my sad duty to tell you that Arnold 'Doc' Burrows passed away peacefully in his sleep on Boxing Day night. He was 95. His son, Simon, advises that the funeral will be on Thursday 25th January, 2:00pm at St Mary & All Saints Church, Stoughton, Leicestershire and will be followed by a gathering at the Cow & Plough pub restaurant, 2 Gartree Road, Oadby, Leicester LE2 2FB. Any Wyvernians who knew him will be most welcome to attend.

Secondly, please note that the deadline for contributions to the next OWT is February 29th. Dennis is short of material at present so please pen a few lines or a few paragraphs of any stories from your schooldays and send them to Dennis. His email address is As I've said before, no contributions = no OWT. Please help to keep it going.

Lastly we have a date for the next Old Wyves Lunch at Clarence House, which is Wednesday 20th March. Thanks to John Hames for liaising with Age UK. If you want to come please let me know - the room we use only holds 35 people maximum so book your place as soon as possible. No advance payment is required.

Hope everyone has a happy and healthy New Year,

Kind regards,
