We were thrilled to welcome more than 50 Old Bradfieldians back to our Junior Tempus Fugit lunch in October.
A significant number of guests arrived early for coffee and a tour of the College campus with Al MacEwen, Director of The Bradfield Society. Many of them returned from the tour describing their experience as ‘extraordinary’. Chris Sheldon (C 70-75) who came back along with his brother Peter (C 68-72) enjoyed what he described as n excellent tour and said “we went to places which I hardly ever visited as a pupil – I think a lot of the school was out of bounds!’ For everyone it was also a chance catch up with old friends and hear about their news.
Chris and Peter were two of 21 OBs from Army House who came back for the lunch and sat together in the centre of Dining Hall on the traditional trestle tables. They enjoyed a lunch prepared by our superb catering team of guinea fowl and wild mushroom roulade followed by Bradfield apple crumble with vanilla cream and apple crumble ice cream.
During the Headmaster’s address a show of hands indicated that around half of those attending had not been back for one of these functions before and in some cases OBs had not been back to Bradfield since they left over 52 years ago.
