Old Paludians Association Annual Reunion: Saturday 23 March 2019
Dear Old Paludian,
You are cordially invited to the 2019 Annual Reunion to be held on Saturday 23 March 2019 at Upton Court Grammar School, Lascelles Road, Slough SL3 7PR from 11am to 5pm. We hope you will be available on that date and that you will make a note in your diary to attend.
The programme for the day will be:
- 11:00 Registration opens. Coffee and tea available all day
- 11:30 Annual General Meeting (AGM)
- 13:00 Traditional Two Course Lunch in the Restaurant
- 14:15 School Tours
- 15:00 Raffle Draw
- Depart at your leisure (doors close at 17.00)
This will be a wonderful opportunity to meet friends and recount shared stories. The main building of the school has undergone a significant transformation in the last year with more planned before the Reunion and this will be a great chance to see the improvements – guided tours will be available. There will be an extensive display of items from the archive, and in the computer room, members will be able to view the on-line archive, with assistance to help you find yourself in a long school photograph and to add names where appropriate. There will also be the formal AGM where you will hear about the ongoing work of the Old Paludians Association. This year has been another with many important developments including the relaunch of our website.
The price of £15.50 is for all food and drink throughout the day. You may opt to have only tea/coffee and biscuits for £3.00 if you so wish.
There will be a raffle with the draw to take place after lunch. Donations of raffle prizes would be especially welcome.
Below is an online booking form to indicate whether or not you will be able to attend the Reunion.
Please do let us know if you can or cannot attend. The reply is important for us to gauge numbers and plan for the event.

The Committee would also like to take this opportunity to remind you of the following:
The Annual Newsletter is published shortly before the reunion. Members are invited to provide contributions. Please e‑mail your news items and interesting stories for the 2019 edition to reach Bob Moss, the editor, at email@example.com not later than end of February 2019(or post: 8 Argyll Road, GLOUCESTER. GL2 0QR tel: 01452 417764). We regret that items received after that date cannot be included.
Payments for the annual Reunion largely cover the cost of catering at the event. The Old Paludians Association is only able to keep going thanks to the generous support of our members. As always, we would be grateful to receive any contributions to help us maintain our community and continue to support the school. If you would like to donate, please use the reply form to do so. Your generous donations last year that enabled us to make donations to the school. Details of how 2018 donations were used will be provided at the AGM and on the website.
It’s essential for us to ensure that our contact list remains up-to-date so that we can continue to reach out to you. We would appreciate it if you could complete and submit the reply form below whether or not you intend to come to the Reunion.
