The inaugural OP Manchester Drinks held at The Gas Works Brew Bar on Tuesday 3 March attracted a good crowd of over 20 OPs and staff with leavers ranging from 1958 to 2019.
OP President, Trevor Loten (70-80) hosted the evening along with colleagues from Pocklington School including Toby Seth (Headmaster), Patrick Dare, Doc Dyson (Former staff, 88-18) and Rachel Dare.
Amongst those attending were two former Head Boys: Henry Foster (09-19) and Andrew Rose (86-93); Will Wilson (51-58) and John Goose (57-64) were the most senior OPs at the event and the largest cohort were the 2019 leavers.
Trevor Loten commented: “What a fabulous event and great to see so many OPs from such a broad range of leaving years mixing and socialising together – some fantastic networking going on which is what the OP network is all about.”
Henry Foster said: “It’s been a really good evening and I hope there’ll be another one next year!”
It is safe to say that Manchester will definitely be on the list for future OP drinks events!
