Guild Reunion 2017

Saturday 20th May over 330 Guild and Honorary members of all ages descended on Cheltenham for the Guild AGM and Reunion. 143 of you returned for the first time since leaving College and we were thrilled with the attendance. Particularly as you visited from so many countries in the world - 14 in total as well as the UK!  With the furthest travelling from New Zealand. 

The day was packed with events including the May Concert, College Prayers, AGM with an update on Guild and College, a talk on College's journey in Pastoral Care, Q&A session with the Principal, College tours and visits to the new EET suite (which included a Caterham Kit Car) as well as trips up to the Observatory and a look inside Starlab (portable planetarium). In the afternoon CAMEO performed extracts from A Chorus Line, members visited boarding houses and then attended a tea in Bayshill Court Dining Room.

Pimms was enjoyed by many and year group photographs taken before a delicious summer buffet lunch in the Princess Hall.

There were plenty of opportunities to catch up with old friends and staff throughout the day and for those who wished to continue into the evening, a dinner was held in the Princess Hall which over 140 Guild members attended.

Some Guild members even returned the following morning to attend the College service in the Princess Hall which was delivered by Guild member Reverend Hilary Wong (Rundle, 1976-1983, St Clare).

Photos from the reunion can be found by clicking here.

Recordings of Prayers and the AGM are available to listen to via the Members Resources section of the website or by clicking here

Feedback from attendees

"What a fantastic day we all had on Saturday at the reunion. Thank you to yourself and your team for organising the event. I feel inspired to attend more things at CLC!" (2007 leaver)

"Had a BRILLIANT weekend and thanks so much for all you do." (1987 leaver)

"I just wanted to say a huge thank you for all your hard work in making the Guild weekend such as success. The class of 77 enjoyed themselves immensely - as you saw! Please pass on my thanks to all involved 'behind the scenes' and particularly to Sarah Parker and her team - there were numerous comments throughout the day about the excellent quality of the food and how much better it is now than it was 40 years ago!" (1977 leaver)

"Saturday was a great feat of organisation which was thoroughly enjoyable. Thank you and your team very much for giving us a happy day and showcasing College so well. I think we'd all like to come back and enjoy all the facilities that we never had! All the meals were delicious and dinner in the PH was particularly splendid." (1962 leaver) 

"Fabulous weekend – many thanks to you all for such brilliant organisation. Amazing to see everyone and College was inspiring." (1992 leaver)

"Many congratulations on a splendid meeting. It was beautifully organised. It seems that College has gone forward in leaps and bounds in the last 70 years and the girls were fantastic to talk to." (1951 leaver)

"Thank you so much for the most wonderful day on Saturday. As always, it was great to be back at Coll and catch up with old friends, and teachers. It is fantastic to hear and see how the school is changing and developing and that the girls are enjoying it so much. (Not sure how I would have got on with the finger print scanner though!)." (2007 leaver)
