e-Newsletter - 28th
Dear Old Cambrian,
Where have the first eight months of 2011
gone?? As regular visitors to the Old
Cambrian Society web site will have noticed, I am relying far more on posting
news items and announcements on the web site rather than producing formal
newsletters. So, if you wish to keep up to date with happenings, please visit
the main page of the web site regularly.
Personally, it’s been an
exceptionally busy year for me both personally and professionally, and as a
result it sometimes takes me a while to respond to queries and post things on
the web site. I do have a big backlog, but I’m tackling it, and working
flat out this bank holiday weekend to clear some of the e-mails that have come
in recently. I think I’m a victim of the success and interest being shown
by “old boys” in the web site and their old school friends.
Anyway, enough of that. The main purpose for this short e-Newsletter is to announce a
couple of events taking place shortly in Kenya. I’m off to Kenya this
coming week for a two week holiday, so will be attending both events, and I
hope to see and catch up with many Old Cambrians whilst I’m there.

OCS wall plaque – could you please e-mail me before Friday 2nd
