Old Eastbournian reunion day ***CANCELLED*** Saturday 5 September
Eastbourne College
 

Sadly we need to cancel this year’s OE Reunion at the College on Saturday 5 September. The last thing the College wants to do at the beginning of a new academic year is to put pupils or OEs at any risk.

By September 2021 we will certainly all be in need of a celebration. Therefore the 2021 reunion will be for OEs from across the generations and it should be a spectacular occasion.

The annual London guided walk - Classic Greenwich Saturday 26 September
Meet at Tower Hill tube
 

The annual London guided walk is always a popular event with members of the Eastbournian Society. This year's walk, led by an expert guide from the London Walks Company, focuses on Greenwich and includes a boat ride along the Thames.

We meet at Tower Hill underground station (District and Circle Lines) in the morning - the exact time and location will be confirmed nearer the date of the walk. 

We will take a boat trip from Tower Pier to Greenwich, where we will see the Cutty Sark, the Old Royal Naval College, the Chapel, Queen's House and Greenwich Park. The duration is about two-and-a-half hours and the walk will finish at Greenwich High Street. If you are travelling back to central London afterwards you will need to have the appropriate Travelcard or use an Oyster or contactless card to pay.

IMPORTANT UPDATE: A final decision on whether the walk will take place will be made at the end of August when we will assess the Covid-19 situation and any associated travel restrictions at that time. The cost of the walk will be about £25 per person; this includes the tour guide, the boat trip and the entrance fee for the Painted Hall at Greenwich. If you are interested in coming along we will be asking for payment in advance to confirm your place(s).

Please contact John Thornley to book.
