"In you get Mr Dick. You're on a long stretch for loitering."
BWS caps and shorts only obligatory if you are doing an AC/DC tribute!
As in 2011 at The White Hart gathering, it's an evening for all of our year; partners; friends in other year groups and as many of our old (!) teachers as I can find.
Also as before, we'll invite our teachers and their wives as our guests, gratis.
The invitation will be going out in as many ways as possible so as not to miss anyone - via my e-mail list from 2011; Dave Shep's FB; BWSNetwork.org.uk; Upcoming Events on BWS-school.org; Linkedin; word of mouth. If you receive it several times you'll at least know you're well connected!
Send me your food choices, dietary needs, queries: firstname.lastname@example.org (many of you will still have this e-mail from 2011)
Do reply, even if it's "No" then I at least know the invitation found you!
Read on for the details and how to pay!
