    Dear Old Girls and Former Members of Staff,

    I am so sorry if you have been feeling insecure about your Tea booking for the Reunion. I realise there will have been confusion over the waiting list scenario but no cheques were paid in until we knew you could be accommodated.

    I have posted on social media that all bookings sent and paid for are accommodated, even if yours arrived after the deadline, and Pauline has been advertising this too. Please spread the word if you know anyone who hasn’t yet heard!

    It has not been usual for Reunion Tea bookings to be acknowledged since cheques paid in are deemed to be your receipt, and with over 200 bookings this year, it was not really possible.

    There will be about 240 of us at the Digby Hall on 12th May – wow!

    Please find attached the Programme for the day.

    If you have not yet paid your £10 for the book “Looking Back at Lord Digby’s School”, would you please confirm whether or not you still want the book.
    If you think you have paid and may have written £10 on the “Top-up donation enclosed” line by mistake, please let me know that too!

    Thank you all for keeping in touch, especially to those who have not made contact for a while.

    On behalf of the Committee I would like to say ”Welcome”, too, to all members who have recently joined the Old Girls’ Association! It’s still only £10 for Life Membership, so get in touch if you are interested.

    See you on 12th May.

    Very Best Wishes,
    Val Giles

    Membership Secretary,
    L.D.S.O.G.A.

    Dear Pauline and your team

    Many thanks for last Saturday’s wonderful reunion. I think it is only the second I have been to since I left in 1964! It was an excellent opportunity to catch up with old classmates and I think there were about 10 out of the 24 in my year there.

    Your team did a brilliant job getting so many of us together. So, once again, many thanks.
