The OWWW's committee is pleased to announce that the 2018 dinner will be held on October 5th at the Leander Club in Henley-on- Thames, courtesy of David Trapnell OW. The cost will be £48 per head. An application form may be found  at the bottom of the page.

There will be a reception in the club bar at 6-30pm at which a complimentary glass of "Leander Pink" together with canapes will be served. You should order your dinner drinks  at this time at the bar and these should be paid for then. Dinner will be served at 7-30pm and will be four courses including cheese and biscuits. It will be followed by coffee and petit fours.

Bookings must be received by the Treasurer by FRIDAY 21st SEPTEMBER

 

Accommodation

There is a limited number of rooms at the Club at £130 per night single occupancy and £152 per night double occupancy, both prices including breakfast and VAT,  which OW's may book. To do this contact Laura Andrew at the Club on 01491 575782,  E mail <events@leander.co.uk> When booking, please tell the club that you are attending the OWWW's dinner. There is also a wide range of hotels in Henley and you can book these via the usual hotel booking sites e.g.Trip Advisor, Expedia or Hotels.com. However, you should note that Henley is often busy with various festivals, so early booking is advised.

 

Daytime Activities

David Knowles has very kindly agreed to organise again an eight at the Upper Thames Rowing Club. Those who are interested in a nostalgic paddle should indicate your willingness to row in the space on the form. Please ensure that you are fit and energetic enough to row for 300 yards or so non stop at a brisk (ish) pace before volunteering to take to the water.

The committee are also investigating other activities which those not interested in the rowing, might like to undertake as a group on the Friday afternoon or on Saturday. Some suggested  possibilities are as follows:

Visit to the Museum of Rowing: Private River Trip (say 2hours): Chiltern Valley Winery (Friday only):Circular Walk Round Henley with Pub Lunch: Pub Lunch (Friday and /or Saturday): Visit to Nuffield House (NT): Visit to Greys Court (NT)

Please indicate if you or your guests  would like to take part in any of these activities on the back of the form and if there is sufficient interest, the necessary arrangements will be made. If you have any other ideas about activities in the Henley area which could be of interest to OW's, please let  Nigel Knowles know (contact details: <ncknowles@blueyonder.co.uk>) and he will see if there is enough interest amongst diners in taking part. 

 

Groups of Friends

The committee is particularly interested in encouraging you to bring your OW friends to the dinner. We often get disappointed diners writing to say that they hoped to meet a long lost class mate at a dinner. We may be able to help you find a particular person if you tell us who they are, but the best way of avoiding such disappointments is to contact your network of friends from the School, get them to come along and in turn ask them to also invite people they might know of too. We have been pleased to see that this system has gradually started to work over the last few years. Let's extend it further.

 

Dress Code

Lounge suits for gentlemen and informal evening wear for the ladies

 

Finally

We are putting together the arrangements but inevitably with 6 months still to go there are still some details to be finalised and we will let you know more about what is planned as these fall into place. Please try to book as soon as you can, we had some people last year who had to be turned away because they tried to book at the last minute. Remember if you have to cancel a booking before the 15th September and notify theTreasurer, your money will be returned

 

The committee looks forward to seeing you on the 5th October.
