A record number of Old Blundellians returned on June 9th to celebrate Old Blundellian Day beginning, as usual, with the AGM. Committee members said goodbye, with thanks, to Richard Giles after many years of service and appointed Lauren Mitchell to the OB Committee.

Chapel was well supported with an excellent sermon from Andrew Hutchinson and a lesson read by President for the Day Nick Swarbrick's daughter, Ellie Freeman. Drinks in the Beale Centre followed with wine again generously provided by the Grose family.

Lunch in the marquee served by the school catering team was of a high quality and enjoyed by 107 diners. Nicola Huggett and Amber Oliver were presented with bouquets in recognition of service and wished bon voyage for their onward journeys away from Blundell's. Nick Swarbrick spoke eloquently about the many spheres of Blundell's life he and Joyce have been involved in. He took as his theme the value of continuity and the vitality of change in the vibrant life of the whole Blundell's constituency.

It was marvellous to see two tables of golfers and two tables of 1980s leavers plus many others returning after long absences. Information about next year's OB Day will be sent out in October and we look forward to working with Blundell's new Head, Bart Wielenga.
