A DIAMOND WEDDING !
PAT AND GORDON WHARRIE
8th April 1961 – 8th April 2021
TO ALL OLD GRAMMARIANS
2020 AND 2021 HAVE BEEN OUR WORST EVER YEARS ! THE PANDEMIC PREVENTED US FROM HOLDING OUR PLANNED 2020 GRAND REUNION OR ANY OF THE THREE PLANNED 1940s ASSOCIATION LUNCHES.
IT WAS THE FIRST IN OVER 30 YEARS WHEN WE HAVE NOT BEEN ABLE TO MEET TOGETHER AND RENEW THE FRIENDSHIPS WHICH BEGAN WHILE WE WERE AT SCHOOL.
BUT YOUR COMMITTEES HAVE NOT BEEN IDLE.
AS TO THE GRAND REUNION THE COMMITTEE DECIDED NOT TO HOLD ONE IN SEPTEMBER 2021, GIVEN ALL THE UNCERTAINTIES. IN PARTICULAR WE HAVE CONSIDERED THE RISKS ASSOCIATED WITH THE MORE SENIOR OF US IN TERMS OF AGE, PLUS THE LIKELIHOOD OF HAVING OTHER UNDERLYING CONDITIONS, PUTTING US IN THE MOST VULNERABLE CATEGORY.
IF CIRCUMSTANCES PERMITTED WE WOULD HOPE TO HOLD ONE IN SEPTEMBER 2022.
YOUR WEBSITE HAS BEEN KEPT UP TO DATE.
THE FINAL EDITION OF THE 1940s ASSOCIATION, THE NEW CIRENCESTRIAN MAGAZINE, WAS SENT OUT WITH THE 1940s ANNUAL RENEWAL FORMS.
THE 2020 AND 2021 NEWSLETTERS, REALLY SUPER DOCUMENTS AND EDITED BY JENNIE HALE, WERE DISTRIBUTED.
SO WE ARE STILL IN BUSINESS. IT IS DOWN TO YOU TO SUPPORT US.
AS SOON AS THE SITUATION EASES YOUR COMMITTEES WILL RECONVENE AND WE WILL LET YOU KNOW WHAT WE THINK IS REALISTIC AND SAFE.
AT THE MOMENT THE NEW VARIATION OF THE VIRUS IS INCREASING AND THIS IS A WORRY. SO WE AWAIT WITH INTEREST HM GOVERNMENT’S ADVICE
IN THE MEANTIME – TAKE CARE
Brian Gegg. Chairman of the 1940s Association
Peter Rowe. Secretary of the Reunion Committee.
Welcome to the website of The Cirencester Old Grammarians.
This site contains a summarised history of most of what is known about the school from medieval times to the present day. Space precludes mention of some topics but these can be researched in the publications mentioned on the ‘Useful Information’ page.
This website is dedicated to the teachers and former pupils of Cirencester Grammar School and, in particular, to those who lost their lives serving their country during the wars of the 20th century.
