Up country to Robin Hood territory
Nottingham alumni reunion
Nearly thirty Exeter School alumni met up in Robin Hood country for a reunion pizza and pasta evening on Friday 13 October. The venue was the Sir John Borlase Warren in the heart of Nottingham’ student quarter.
Exonians from the 1950s to recent leavers enjoyed the two-course meal and the wide range of drinks on offer at the pub renowned for its choice of draft beers and cocktails. There was a strong contingent amongst the guests of those associated with the health service, from current undergraduates studying medicine and F1 doctors to those connected to the University Medical School and the Queen’s Medical Centre. This reflected Exeter School’s history of links with medicine in Nottingham, which dates back to the 1980s.
It was lovely to see Exonians who had travelled from Bristol, Sheffield, Leicester and Birmingham Universities to join their friends in Nottingham, and to welcome former staff William Lines with his wife Sarah, and current staff Mike Porter, Russell Cull and Karen Dart, together with Director of Alumni John Davidson and the Headmaster Bob Griffin.
Guests dispersed sometime after 10pm, some to prepare for sporting or work commitments on Saturday, and others to sample Nottingham’s vibrant nightlife. Thanks go to the team at the Sir John Borlase Warren Tavern for their friendly welcome and a delightful meal.
