OCA Annual Reunion Dinner

OCA Annual Reunion Dinner

Once again numbers exceeded expectation for the annual reunion dinner of the Old Cerdics Association last Saturday 10th June 2017.  Long before the closing date a record attendance was assured with former pupils travelling long distance from as far afield as Lincolnshire and Cheshire to be in Chard for this popular event.  Many met beforehand at our Summer Fair on Monmouth Lawn.

Our Headmistress, Sarah Graham, was the principal guest.  Having responded to a Toast to ‘The School’ she in turn proposed a Toast to ‘Old Cerdics’ to which OCA President responded.   After a sumptuous buffet dinner live musical entertainment was provided by two Old Cerdics Stewart Hull and Darryl Uprichard.

This annual event is already booked for the same weekend next year – Saturday 9th June 2018.  It will be a special year for the OCA as the association will be celebrating its 90th anniversary having been founded at Chard School on 1st December 1928 – so an even larger attendance is expected.
