Egdon Hall Weymouth April 2008
The remnants of the 1967 intake on their pilgrimage to the remnants of Egdon Hall Hostel in April 2008. After a nostalgic journey by minibus to Weymouth the boys attempted to relive the experiences of 1967/68 in Dorset (with some successes I have to say!). Nostalgic visits were made to the Winfrith Heath site and Lulworth Cove (why did they choose to sleep on the beach all those years ago?)

10th November 2006 - The Full Monty Ex-Apprentices from 1965 through to 1987

About 50% of the turnout in the photo as some remained inside and other splinter groups had staggered onwards.

Congratulations to The Tavern as their splendid array of continually changing real ales resulted in us spending 5 hours in the same boozer.
