The annual Cambridge Dinner took place on Friday 10 March at Pembroke College.
Dr Richard Parmee (1962 – 69), Fellow of Pembroke hosted the occasion which started with pre-dinner drinks of Champagne. Clive Dash presided the event.
Two younger Old Elizabethans were present, both undergraduates who are currently at Cambridge. Together with the Headmaster, Stephen Holliday and Events and Alumni Coordinator, Fiona Ledger, OE attendees were:
Richard Parmee (1962 – 1969), Mr Clive Dash (1951 – 1958), Mr John Betty (1962 – 1964), Mr David Clark (1948 – 1955), John Ardron (1976 – 1983), HH Just Michael Yelton (1960 – 1963), The Revd Canon Ian Silk (1971 – 1978), Peter Knowlson (1962 – 1969), George Neville (2009 – 2016), Edgar Thornton (2009 – 2016).
The Headmaster gave an insightful update on the progress and future plans for the school as well as the state of the education scene in Bristol and beyond and this led to an open forum. A lively discussion ensued.
