St Beghians’ Day
Saturday, 27th June 2015
In view of the school’s impending closure, OSB Day was brought forward to the summer term and a large number of OSBs and guests along with former members of staff gathered in splendid weather for what was, inevitably, a bitter-sweet occasion. The day began with a crowded AGM, a report of which can be read elsewhere in this issue. Lunch in the Foundation was preceded by a service in the school chapel, which was led by the Rev Richard Lee.
The afternoon was spent most enjoyably in reminiscing and renewing old acquaintances before tea was taken in the Memorial Hall where an exhibition of memorabilia could be viewed. Two cricket matches took place during the day. The first was between the school and the OSB Forty Club, coordinated by Jason Spires (F 86-93), and the second, in the afternoon, was an informal ‘scratch’ game, mainly organised by Lee Henderson (SH 87-94). Those who signified their attendance in advance are listed here along with others whom we know were present on the day.
