No. 187

OSB Logo The Old St Beghian
  January 2015



The Society’s North-East Branch has been well served by Bill Dove, who this year has reached the splendid landmark of forty years as Secretary.
During all these years the Branch has grown and thrived and its vibrancy is recognised and appreciated by the school.
Organising an annual dinner is no easy task and Bill has diligently and meticulously ensured each of the forty he has put in place has been well attended, well organized, and memorable.
Both the Branch and the Society as a whole made the easy decision to mark Bill’s service practically.
A whole-day get-together was arranged for the one-day match between Durham CC and Middlesex CC played at the Durham County Ground on Sunday, 10th August 2014. Branch members, representatives from the school and other friends met in goodly numbers.
Sadly the dismal weather forecast proved accurate and after less than one hour’s play stumps were drawn for the day.
However guests enjoyed breakfast, lunch and tea in fine style and throughout the day many jovial reminiscences were exchanged.
The highlight of the day was the formal presentation of a carriage clock to Bill. This was on behalf of the whole Society as a gesture of appreciation.
