makes a point

On Friday 16th April 2004, 111 Old Cambrians and partners attended the Annual Dinner of the Old Cambrian Society(UK), a record number for recent years. Many had travelled a long way for the evening - from Canada, the U.S.A., South Africa, Kenya, Switzerland, Belgium, Scotland, Wales, Jersey and also far-flung places in England.

Old Cambrian Society ties were on sale at the door, and these were worn with pride on the night by many who had purchased one. The last known stock of OCS ties was produced in the early 1960s, so this in itself was a memorable event for that reason.

The atmosphere was one of informality, and the Faya Restaurant, with its Mediterranean atmosphere, was a perfect setting for people to gather to share memories of their youth and to reminisce. As usual, old photos and Impala magazines were in plentiful supply on most tables, and up on a big screen there was the now customary slide show consisting of photos taken from the Old Cambrian Society web site, wildlife photos taken in Kenya, and also some photos of prominent buildings in Nairobi taken in the 1950s......some 170 photos in all.
