More than 100 people attended the "Picnic on the Swan" ....... including 22 Old Cambrians, along with Duko types, some from Iringa, St Marys, Highlands, Loreto etc. This event was organised as a get-together for ex-East Africans and is something we can build on, and there will definitely be another picnic next year! We are also aiming for an Old Cambrian Society dinner or lunch later in the year. Mike Purves did most of the work and deserves full credit for his efforts. Some left early before we could get clicking, but we got a few together and there are a few individual shots. Here they are .........
