The Goldonian Winter 1957
First Afternoon Re-Union of Goldings Old Boys
All through the year many Old Boys are welcomed at Goldings. Some spend their leave from H. M. Forces or holidays from situations at the
School, others "pop in to say 'Hello'." However short or long such visits last the conversation always ends up by a discussion of the time "when
I was here". So it seemed that it might be a good idea to set aside a particular afternoon when it would be possible for Old Boys to foregather at
Goldings and know that they would meet their old friends.
Our first attempt, this year, was enjoyed by all those who came along. During the afternoon and over tea, old times were thoroughly gone over and
the more recent changes, too, discussed. Many changes were noted by the visitors especially those of the older generation. All agreed that the
afternoon which was set apart for such a purpose was a good idea and an event to be looked forward to. The second of these re-unions is fixed for
the first Sunday in October 1958. Make a note of the date.
It is 52 years this year since the the first official reunions began, also 40 years since the closing of The William Baker Technical School.

Reunion Photos

I had stopped putting the winners on the website but by popular demand here are the 2018 scores
The winning house 2018, with the highest attendance of Old Boys would have been Somerset and Aberdeen a very close second.
What house will be the winner this year 2019 if you donít attend and sign in you canít win for your house. I have counted this
year the boys like Gordon Rath who hasnít given his house but I do know he was MacAndrew but lots of others I just donít
know, I can only count the boys who put their house name in the visitors book.

2007 winners were Somerset
2008 winners were Cairns
2009 winners were Aberdeen
2010 winners are Somerset
2011 winners are Somerset
2012 winners are Aberdeen and Somerset with a draw
2013 winners again were winners Aberdeen a close second by 3 points you lads really must sign in
2014 winners are Aberdeen and Somerset with a draw.
2015 winners are Somerset
2018 winners Somerset
Sorry to Mike Justice M.B.E. CAIRNS, who tried so hard to get CAIRNS HOUSE boys to sign in, but once again you were
pipped at the post by SOMERSET.

Due to the recent information by
Boris Johnson (reference Corona Virus)
the limited number of people meeting
maximum 6 inside or out and the
requirements of the hall it is impossible
to continue with the Reunion.
So Iíve had to cancel this years reunion
see you all next year hopefully.
Please stay safe and keep in touch.

Saturday 2nd October

I will be in Hertford this weekend giving our Commemoration Bench an overall, if by any chance you are
passing through Waterford village and see us donít forget to give us a BEEP
Hopefully the weather will be kind there has never as yet been a Reunion Day since Iíve been organising it
(2004) that has been really cold and rainy. We will see.

Well we have come out of lock-down just to start slowly going back into it.
Reunion cancelled and Christmas may be next, not bothered much about Christmas but I'm gutted about the Reunion.
Still Golding's Boys will always bounce back. Maybe everyone can send in a photo of themselves and whoever they are with
and whatever they are doing on the day I can add to the site.
There's always a way around everything
