As previously advised, the Bangor Dinner for past pupils of BGS will be staged on Friday 9 November at the Marine Court Hotel, venue for many successful past gatherings. One of our own number, Stephen Martin MBE, winner of a Gold Medal with the Great Britain men’s hockey team at the 1988 Seoul Olympic Games (plus Bronze at Los Angeles in 1984), will be our guest speaker.
The customary dinner flyer is reproduced here – it has already been circulated to all those past pupils for whom we have a current email address and it was also included with the 2018 edition of the Grammarian magazine (printed and digital versions). With just two weeks to go we would urge anyone who has yet to submit their form to do so at their earliest convenience. Please direct any questions about the dinner to our special email address.
We look forward to welcoming class groups from all ‘generations’ of past pupils, especially those celebrating noteworthy anniversaries. Members of the Class of 1951 have never needed an excuse to reunite for the Bangor Dinner, while the Class of 1975 will mark the 50th anniversary of starting at BGS in September 1968. There will also be sizeable representations by the Classes of 1978 and 1983.
Needless to say, a very warm welcome will be extended to class groups who left the school in the 21st Century!
