London Dinner

The RAF Club once again played host to the London OSBs’ annual dinner, which took place on 31st May 2019. Thirty-two members and guests enjoyed an excellent evening, and were delighted to welcome the Headmaster Roger Sinnett, and Lawrence Gribble, both of Full Circle, as our special guests, as well as our President, Peter Lever. The Headmaster brought us up to date with current developments at the school and the educational goals of Full Circle, and left us with a strong feeling of optimism about the future of the school. We were grateful also to Peter Lever for his account of the Society and the School Trust. The event attracted OSBs from a wide range of school years (from 1952 to 2009) and memories were shared long into the night.
