recent Committee Meeting we discussed the viability of future events
of your Association. We have made two attempts at arranging Reunion
Dinners in the past 12 months which have both failed owing to
insufficient interest of our Members.
discussed several possible ideas but regrettably it was felt that
there would be insufficient interest to make any of them a viable
proposition in the forseable future. Should any particular age group
wish to arrange separate events for their own age groups in the future
we will offer any possible assistance to them.
hoped for an influx of younger members with the formation of the
Wilmington Grammar School for Boys Alumni, but regrettably this has
not happened. Since the School headteacher Andy Williamson left and
was replaced by the Head of the Girls Grammar School as Executive Head
of both Schools there had been little contact with the School despite
our efforts, this has obviously not helped our future.
like to thank those members that have supported our events in the past
and give our apologies to the regular attendees that we cannot
to continue the Association Website in its present format, with the
Database being updated on its present regular basis.
of usable articles has also made it virtually impossible to publish
the regular Newsletters, should we receive sufficient copy then we
will endeavour to produce the occasional one.
final note it must also be recognised that most of the Committee
Members are obviously not getting any younger and find it difficult to
do the work involved in organising events. Should there be any younger
members who would like to come forward and take the place of us older
ones we will of course give any help to a new Committee.
