The reunion this year falls on Sunday the 19th May.

The mid-morning / lunch-time gathering will take place in the Wetlands area of the Entertainment Centre. There is no official start or finish time - just arrive when you can and find a spot by the western lake, under the shady trees.

After all these years we do not all attend, every year. If you are visiting from further afield, please let a few of the locals know, including those we may have lost touch with. BYO food/drinks/table/chairs and aeroguard for the mosquitoes. Barbeques are provided.

We will make a decision on the Wed / Thurs prior to the 19th May depending / trusting the weather forecast and we will send an email if the function is cancelled.
