Manchester Reunion

When we originally sent out an email about a reunion in Manchester we were a little uncertain of how many Alumni were in the area. We were delighted to meet up with the following Old Boys and find where life has taken them since leaving West Buckland..   Exmoor Experience Thursday 19th March was a special day for some of our passengers aboard the vintage bus. Travelling though the beautiful Exmoor Countryside, they had the opportunity to watch the races, partake of liquid refreshments at The Poltimore Arms, meet up with old school friends and remember when they too ran the Exmoor over 50 years ago.   Exmoor Run It was the perfect day for a 10 mile run over Exmoor. Thank you to everyone who took part you were all fabulous   Golf Day It was a beautiful day for the OWBA Golf Day which was held on 23rd of April at Ellesborough Golf Club.   Exeter Reunion ABode, Exeter was the setting for the latest OWBA reunion in May. Over 35 former pupils and staff, spanning seven decades of West Buckland’s rich history joined us for an evening of shared memories and good company.   70’ & 80’s Reunion Over 130 former pupils and teachers descended on West Buckland School on Saturday 20th June for the OWBA 70’s & 80’s reunion.   Speech Day & 1940’s Reunion Speech Day was especially poignant this year We had the privilege of being part of a special moment when three Old Boys who were at WBS in the 1940’s were presented with their Fortescue Medals which due to medal shortages during the war, they did not receive at the time. Birmingham Reunion A huge thank you to everyone who came along to the reunion in Birmingham and made it such a special evening.   Tom Hitchins’ Lunch The Dartmoor Lodge Hotel was the beautiful setting for this years’ Tom Hitchins’ Lunch.
