Trinity Reunions in 2018 & 2019

Class of 66 Reunion in 2019

Richard Campbell reports that a group of former Trinity pupils from the class of '66 recently got together at The Old Bank Pub in Northampton.  We hope to hold another reunion next year. Hopefully, more members of the class of '66 will be able to attend.

L to R: Allan Jones, Paul Kirby,  Richard Campbell, Mike Edmunds,  Denise Moisey,  Pam Warner , Jenny Neal, Sue Stevenson, Sue Shaw, Dave Patrick. (maiden names used).

Class of 63 Reunion in 2019

This year's Class of 1963 was held at The Four Pears in Little Houghton.  A total of 27 people attended, some of these were partners, so there were 17 former pupils.  It was a very hot day, but everybody had a great time, despite that.  The prize for the greatest effort to get there must go to Gordon Brommage who could not confirm until 10pm the night before that he could make it, and then caught a train from Preston some time after 7am, had to change twice due to track works, to make it to the venue just in time.  He went back the same way.  Thank you for coming.

There are two group photos below taken by the barman.  Sadly several people are not very visible.  Sorry for that.

Class of 63 Reunion in 2018

A mini-reunion was organised for the Class of 63.  (Those pupils that finished the 5th 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.
