Class of 63 Reunion

A mini-reunion was organised for the Class of 63.  (Those pupils that finished the 6th form in July 1963) and took place on the 24th July at the Hopping Hare.

The afternoon started at the bar just before 12:30.  There were 22 people attending, of which 14 were former pupils and 8 were partners who had not been to Trinity.  After drinks and the initial catch-up we sat down for a two-course lunch.  The food was very good and the chat became louder as we finished the main course.  Rita Humber (as was) brought along some photos that people looked over (they will appear on the website later) and Gordon Bromage had found his old diaries.  He showed a couple of pages to Bob & Val Bierton (was Clarke).  There was an entry for 23rd July 1961, which described a day out, and said that Bob had first met Val on that day.  That was 57 years and one day ago!

Mary had come the furthest distance from Southern Ireland, but Gordon had come from Preston by the train and was going back afterwards.  Steve & Maureen had come up from the South Coast, with no thanks to the A34.

After lunch at 3pm, we went on a surprise visit.  Mike Edmunds had offered to give us a tour of Northampton in his beautifully restored Northampton Transport double decker bus (that many of us went on at the reunion in 2007).  Everybody had jumped at the chance when asked at the start of the lunch.  Mike gave us a great tour of the town, which to many of us, who no longer live in Northampton, it was very interesting, if some of it was pretty sad!   The tour lasted an hour and was excellent.  It had been unexpected as Mike does not live in Northampton, and was unexpectedly in town and made the much valued offer.  A big thank-you to Mike for providing the tour. 

Mike's bus (BNH246C) entered service in March 1965, the year that those of us who went on to the sixth form finished at the school.  Very appropriate.

After we got back around 4:15, most people left, as they had journeys to make, but 5 of us stayed until 6pm.  A great day.  The list of people who came is below, plus the photos.
