DSOBA members plan "eve of lunch" get-together

Old Palace Lodge, Friday September 25th 2015

 
 

Old friends Brian Mendes (1941-49), from Ontario, Canada, and Paul Cowing (1942-48), from Norfolk, have already planned to attend what seems certain to be the last Annual Lunch in the School Hall, and are taking the opportunity to get as many Members together on the Friday night before the event.
They will be staying overnight at the Old Palace Lodge, on the Friday and Saturday, and have suggested that other Old Dunstablians might like to join them for a meal or for an informal get together in the bar.

 

 

Brian said: If ODs are interested in either a meal or just a social, perhaps they might get in touch with me via e-mail, on Briwilmen@rogers.com. If interest warrants it, we could check with the hotel to see if a separate room might be arranged.

I have been in contact with Barry Brown [Membership Secretary and deputy archivist] and the screen projection of his 115 photos posted on the DSOBA website is being considered as entertainment."
 

 

 

Brian is at pains to point out that whatever is planned, it wont be restricted to his and Pauls age group. Certainly, one person who is up for it is Committee member David Durnford (1961-66), who travels up from Cornwall. He said: I would like to do more on my whistle-stop trip to Dunstable.
Inevitably, tickets will sell quickly for this lunch, and with numbers restricted to a maximum of 120 because of the size of the hall, it is essential that Members apply as soon as possible. School Lunch Ticket

Hi Dave.  I've attached a jpeg of a 1905 postcard of the old place --

it looks a ruin even then! Hope it's of use.  Best wishes,  Den
