Hartswood was the venue of this years Old Reigatians Annual Dinner on Friday 15 May 2015. It was great to see so many OR’s in attendance from theclasses of the 1940’s right up to and including 2010.
Guests arrived to Hartswood in the early evening and were greeted by a glass of Pimms on the pavilion balcony in the sunshine. With the Inaugural RGS Foundation XI v RGS Headmaster’s XI cricket match finishing that afternoon, the playing teams attended the dinner in the evening which provided a relaxed atmosphere for old classmates and friends to reunite and socialise.
David Jones (RGS Staff ’75-2011) spoke with emotion about his old friend ‘H’ when awarding the Harry Newton Cup to the winning cricket captain Chris Bates (’88) who narrowly secured victory in an entertaining match (read match report here).
The Headmaster, Shaun Fenton, expressed his pleasure in seeing such a mix of age ranges of Reigatians at the dinner and took the opportunity to report on the fine state that RGS is currently in with music, sport, drama and academic results at an all time high.
