Just over a month until the Class of 1993 25th Reunion on Friday the 24th of August.
Dear OC, there's still time to attend! Class of 1993 25th Anniversary Reunion Dinner - Friday 24th August 2018 It is hard to believe that it was 25 years ago that we left school and headed off into the big bad world. Whether this makes you feel old or not, each year the OC Society organises a 25th Reunion for those reaching this milestone. Therefore, it is with great pleasure that you are cordially invited to attend our 25th Anniversary Reunion Dinner for the leavers of 1993. The Dinner will be held at the College on Friday 24th August 2018 at 7.15pm for 7.45pm. We have had high levels of interest from across the year group and have tracked down current contact details, including many from overseas. A number of guests including the current Headmaster, Robert Robinson and the OC Society President, Robert Bell, together with several of our former teachers will be joining us for the evening. A complimentary drink will be served on arrival in the Entrance Hall and there will be a cash bar available all evening located in the Dining Hall. To confirm your attendance at the Dinner, please complete the 25th Reunion Form and post it together with a cheque for £50 to the Old Campbellian Society. Alternatively click below to go to the OC online shop and purchase your place: https://www.oldcampbellians.co.uk/events . “Tickets” are not required for the Dinner, however, you will receive an acknowledgement of your purchase. The Dinner is for Class of 1993 old boys, including all of our peers from that year group, no matter when they departed the school/Cabin Hill. The invitation does not include partners. Sadly, there are a number members of the year with whom we have lost touch. If you know of the contact details of anyone in our year then please forward their details by email or by post to the OC Society Office. This is very important in order that we get as many of our peers together on the night and please also register on the website if you’ve not already done so. To assist in the organization; Aleric Turtle, Gavin Fisher & James Pollen have agreed to act as Conveners for the Reunion. Please contact us, or the OC Office (02890 763 613) or firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions about the event. Please visit the Facebook page “Campbell Reunion” for further details. We look forward to seeing you in August and picking up where we left off in the Summer of 1993 and before! And please spread the word.

The area will be available to us from 6pm onwards, on Thursday 13th September. There will be food platters available to order on the night.
