Reunion Lunch for Cholmeleians at Highgate between 1945 and 1950 at Highgate School
Saturday 26th May, 2012
On a day of glorious early summer sunshine, over 60 Cholmeleians and their partners from the 1945-50 reunited at Highgate for a tour of the School and lunch in the Dining Hall. Drinks overlooking Senior Field were followed by a seasonal menu of salmon and strawberries and the odd glass (or two!) of wine. Mellowed, the OCs tried valiantly to listen to speeches about the School's progress from Simon Appleton, the Society's Liaison Officer, and Robert Wilne, Director of Sir Roger Cholmeley's Charity at Highgate but were defeated by the Dining Hall's poor acoustics. Copies of the speeches will be posted on to our guests, together with a copy of the group photograph. The day was enjoyable one, both for those who've been back to see the School before, and for those who haven't been back for a while (forty years, in some cases!). You will all be very welcome back again before too long!
