A bumper number of OPs came along to this year’s OP Newcastle drinks event on Thursday 30 January at ‘As You Like It’, the popular Jesmond-based venue.
Those hosting the event were OP President, Trevor Loten (70-80) and Pocklington School colleagues Charlie Lambert (01-08, OP committee member), Patrick Dare, Doc Dyson (Former staff, 88-18) and Rachel Dare.
Over 30 OPs called in for drinks and a catch up including Kelvin Tong (89-94), a former Hong Kong boarder who now lives in the North East.
Trevor said a few words of thanks to everyone for coming and passed on apologies from those who were unable to make it before raising a toast in memory of OP and former teacher, Malcolm Milne, who recently passed away.
The next OP drinks event will be at The Gas Works Brew Bar in Manchester on Tuesday 3 March 2020 from 7.00pm to 9.00pm. All OPs are welcome. Please contact the OP office to let us know if you are planning to come.
