The Goldonian Winter 1957
First Afternoon Re-Union of Goldings Old Boys
All through the year many Old Boys are welcomed at Goldings. Some spend their leave from H. M. Forces or holidays from situations at the
School, others "pop in to say 'Hello'." However short or long such visits last the conversation always ends up by a discussion of the time "when
I was here". So it seemed that it might be a good idea to set aside a particular afternoon when it would be possible for Old Boys to foregather at
Goldings and know that they would meet their old friends.
Our first attempt, this year, was enjoyed by all those who came along. During the afternoon and over tea, old times were thoroughly gone over and
the more recent changes, too, discussed. Many changes were noted by the visitors especially those of the older generation. All agreed that the
afternoon which was set apart for such a purpose was a good idea and an event to be looked forward to. The second of these re-unions is fixed for
the first Sunday in October 1958. Make a note of the date.
It is 52 years this year since the the first official reunions began, also 40 years since the closing of The William Baker Technical School.
If you don’t receive your invitation please contact me and I will send you one through the email or post if you prefer.

Reunion Photos

I had stopped putting the winners on the website but by popular demand here are the 2018 scores
The winning house 2018, with the highest attendance of Old Boys would have been Somerset and Aberdeen a very close second.
What house will be the winner this year 2019 if you don’t attend and sign in you can’t win for your house. I have counted this
year the boys like Gordon Rath who hasn’t given his house but I do know he was MacAndrew but lots of others I just don’t
know, I can only count the boys who put their house name in the visitors book.

2007 winners were Somerset
2008 winners were Cairns
2009 winners were Aberdeen
2010 winners are Somerset
2011 winners are Somerset
2012 winners are Aberdeen and Somerset with a draw
2013 winners again were winners Aberdeen a close second by 3 points you lads really must sign in
2014 winners are Aberdeen and Somerset with a draw.
2015 winners are Somerset
2018 winners Somerset
Sorry to Mike Justice M.B.E. CAIRNS, who tried so hard to get CAIRNS HOUSE boys to sign in, but once again you were
pipped at the post by SOMERSET.

Programme for the day
10.00am The Sele Farm Community Centre opens
During the last few years of our re-unions many of the residents welcome us to visit the grounds, but please respect their privacy, as we are no longer
the occupiers. David and Denise once again invites all Old Boys to their apartment for food and drinks Between 12’o’clock till 3’o’clock on the day,
please support them with this fine gesture on our behalf.
Can you make sure you don’t park and upset residents, perhaps share a car for the visit and try to park in Goldings Lane on the grassed area and there
may be a few spaces on the Village Hall, I will ask permission. Just remember the North Road can now be dangerous!
There will be a lull in the hall between 4-0 pm to 6-30 pm for those who want to visit Hertford. The evening meal will start approx 7-30 to 8-00 pm.
There will be a raffle with all donations going to the reunion funds. Many thank’s, do enjoy the day out and please respect the present day resident’s
Aftercare will be available for any enquires you may have in the early part of the day.

(Donations are greatfully accepted)
We do cater for Vegetarians, provided we are informed well before the day.
